Microsoft Partners with Helion Energy to Secure Holy Grail of Unlimited Energy
Microsoft has signed an agreement to purchase electricity from a nuclear fusion generator, considered the holy grail of energy.
Scientists have pursued for nearly a century the potential for a limitless source of clean energy known as hydrogen fusion.
According to an announcement, Helion Energy, a company aiming to deliver nuclear fusion, has entered into a power purchase agreement with Microsoft.
The first commercial fusion generator in the world is planned to be connected to a power grid in Washington.
Owing to its potential to provide limitless power without greenhouse emissions, fusion is considered the holy grail of energy production.
Recent breakthroughs in achieving net energy gain are the result of the decades-long pursuit by scientists of fusion energy.
Helion’s fusion prototypes have set records for energy output and operating temperature.
A major challenge is presented by building a first-of-its-kind power plant within a short timeframe.
Aiming to make fusion-generated electricity comparable to or cheaper than existing power sources, affordability is a key aspect to consider.
