    • State of fusion Gieljan de Vries FOM Institute for Plasma Physics Rijnhuizen
    • Energy use
    • More people – more energy demand
    • Energy projection 1980 — 2100
    • Fusion - energy for the future Fire 2.0 Heat without CO 2 Large scale Compact machine Safe and renewable
    • Fusion reaction — pushing nuclei together
    • Fusion fuel
      • Deuterium
      • Tritium
      • Lithium
      sea water billions of years worth ??? get it from... mining - 3000 years sea water – 30,000 years
    • Fusion – lighting the reaction Heart of the sun: 15 miljoen degrees enormous pressure On Earth 150 million degrees Heat with microwave power!
    • Keeping in the heat – plasma reacts to magnets
    • Keeping in the heat with magnetic fields
    • Work horse of fusion – the tokamak
      • Tokamak (1959)
      • magnetic confinement
      • 250 built
      • JET (Oxford, UK)
      • fusion record in 1996
      • 16 MW produced
      • ...25 MW used
    • Fusion in action
    • Building the future
      • ITER (2019)
      • Successor of JET
      • World wide cooperation
      • Large EU share
      • Fusion power
      • 50 MW use
      • 500 MW production!
      ITER
