The promise of hydrogen fusion as a safe, environmentally friendly, and virtually unlimited source of energy has motivated scientists and engineers for decades. For the general public, the pace of fusion research and development may at times appear to be slow. But for those on the inside, who understand both the technological challenges involved and the transformative impact that fusion can bring to human society in terms of the security of the long-term world energy supply, the extended investment is well worth it.
Failure is not an option.

This roundtable discussion will feature representatives from utilities awarded funding through DOE’s Light Water Reactor Sustainability Program to demonstrate hydrogen production at existing LWR plants in Ohio, Arizona, and Minnesota. The speakers will provide their perspectives on the first-of-a-kind projects that represent a significant opportunity to improve the long-term economic competitiveness of the current LWR fleet by providing experience and insights on the production of clean hydrogen in addition to electricity at operating nuclear power plants.
