Doug Vining Cold fusion takeover

This cold fusion device has been called dubious and unproven. But now a US venture capital company has acquired it with the aim of developing the technology and making it widely available.

Will it work? If it does, it will change everything.

Doug Vining Fusion's future

This nuclear fusion startup isn't trying to recreate cold fusion experiments. Instead they think that their reactor engine can create hot fusion in one-second cycles, generating a net gain of electric current. The problem with fusion energy, it's always a decade away, even in a decade. I think cheap solar will beat fusion power in the next decade, but who knows?

"At the scale they’re designing for, the team thinks that it will have significant price advantages once they go to market. Their design collects charged particles with each pulse, meaning it can generate electricity without having to construct a pricey turbine in addition to the reactor. The reactor is fueled by deuterium, an isotope of hydrogen that is abundant in sea water, making it more affordable than truckloads of diesel."

Doug Vining Portable nuclear power

No this invention is not cold fusion, or even warm fusion. Rather it is a nuclear power cell, described as a water-based battery. Perhaps it should be called a fuel cell, as the radioactive material presumably gets used up. It's also unclear whether this device can be recharged and discharged, or if it's a one-time use. My guess is that it would be fairly expensive to use in place of a rechargeable lithium battery in a car, but for specialised applications could prove superior.

Neil Jacobsohn Nuclear fusion a reality?

We've written a lot on these pages over the years about the dream of nuclear fusion - clean, fast nuclear energy. Could it actually be happening? The sceptics remain, but it seems unlikely that a company of the stature of Lockheed Martin would make lose claims. The energy market just got more exciting!

Neil Jacobsohn Clean. limitless fusion energy one step closer

The relentless drive of alternative energies, from solar to wind to hydro and now, as well, fusion, is unstoppable. The fossil fuel industry days are truly limited.

Doug Vining Clean, limitless fusion energy one step closer

As much as I would love to be proved wrong, I must admit that I am not optimistic about fusion energy being commercialised in the next couple of decades. It is extraordinarily complex and costly, even to do experimental level fusion reactions, and suffers from the same problem conventional nuclear plants do - it relies on mega-projects, typically with state funding. On the other hand, technologies like solar that can be widely and flexibly deployed, even on a DIY basis, empowering individuals and businesses to make their own choices, are far more likely to dominate in the future!
