Our mission is to lead the commercial development of fusion power and related technology and position the UK as a leader in sustainable nuclear energy.

Fusion is an international endeavour and we are world-leaders. To achieve fusion power on earth we need to recreate a miniature star and harness its energy. There are challenges, but the high tech solutions required for fusion have synergies with other areas and potential to enable growth in the UK.

This document sets out our mission and corporate goals.
