Fusion Energy: Navigating the Challenges and Breakthroughs of the JET Experiment


JET Fusion Experiment Sets New Record




The recent JET fusion experiment has made progress, but commercial fusion power remains a distant goal. Despite achieving fusion and generating 69 megajoules of energy for five seconds, the process still falls far short of the net energy needed for a commercial power plant. With existing technologies, the efficiency is only around 1.97%, highlighting the significant challenges ahead. While fusion research is crucial for the future, it's likely to be a long-term endeavour, possibly extending into the 22nd century. The exception may be radical new approaches like the cavitation method, offering hope for quicker breakthroughs.
