Type One Energy is now executing its FusionDirect technology program, which is a partner-rich, capital-efficient path to commercialization. The program builds upon the exceptional network of fusion partners. Co-founders of the Type One team proved the benefits of stellarators with their construction of the HSX and W7-X machines. These operating stellarators demonstrate excellent agreement between theory and real-world design.
With scientific validations complete, the pilot plant can proceed to achieve stellarator fuel ignition conditions (Q = infinity) and put fusion electrons on the grid.
