At this event, the US will announce an inclusive international-partnership strategy and invitation for engagement to advance a common, bold vision for commercial fusion energy. Fusion energy holds the promise to be an abundant, safe, and reliable source of clean energy that can help the world meet its growing clean-energy demand and enable the continued flourishing of human civilization. Very strong recent technical progress and market interest in fusion provide an opportunity, indeed an imperative, to accelerate efforts in commercial fusion development and deployment. The announcement will be followed by a discussion amplifying the themes of the announcement, with a range of panelists underscoring the importance of fusion for a sustainable and equitable clean-energy transition.
