TAE Technologies is located in Foothill Ranch, California, where its National Laboratory-scale fusion device, Norman, performs an average of 650 experiments per month. Named after TAE's technology co-founder Dr. Norman Rostoker, the $150 million machine was constructed from scratch and is fifth in a sequence of seven machines that will help TAE deliver commercial hydrogen-boron fusion – the cleanest, safest, most abundant carbon-free energy source – to the world. TAE will begin construction on its sixth machine, Copernicus, this year.
Attendees must fill out the TAE Guest Form by May 13, 2022 to receive an NDA and gain entry to the tour. Please email any questions to TOFE22@TAE.com.
Available to TOFE attendees only and on a first come first serve basis with a capacity of 200.
