In reaction to the UK Government’s announcement that it will join Horizon Europe and set up a domestic fusion energy strategy, Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, said:

“UK nuclear scientists are world-class, so it’s very good news that they will be able to access Horizon funds. Our association will boost our collaboration with international partners and drive more value into the UK supply chain.

“We’re also pleased to see that the Government has made a separate commitment to a serious programme of investment in our UK fusion industry. We are at the forefront of the global race on fusion, and we have to do everything in power to secure that lead and build up our industrial capability to commercialise this technology. Fusion offers the promise of nearly boundless clean energy, and the first country to deploy it successfully will reap the greatest reward.”
