General Fusion was founded in 2002 with a goal to transform the world’s energy supply by developing the fastest, most practical, and cost-competitive path to commercial fusion power.
In 2006, Dr. Laberge completed proof-of-principle experiments, and with the support of leading venture capital firms, General Fusion began building a team that today is recognized as a global leader in commercial fusion energy.
The company has now grown to a team of nearly 50 scientists at its world class laboratories in Burnaby, just outside Vancouver, where it is developing the key components of the world’s first fusion power plant.
General Fusion has been recognized globally for its work in clean energy technology, and is a member of the Cleantech Global 100 (2014, 2015) as well as the recipient of numerous Canadian and international cleantech awards. In the media, Dr. Laberge’s 2014 TED Talk about fusion energy has attracted over one million viewers, and the company has been featured in publications such as TIME Magazine, Scientific American and BBC Horizons.
Fusion energy has the potential to create a cleaner, safer world, and General Fusion is developing the technology to make it available as soon as possible.
