Abstract

Fusion energy could contribute to the emission-free large-scale production of base-Ioad electricity. The advances made in fusion energy research justify the further pursuit of a vigorous effort towards the long-term objective of a fusion power plant. This booklet and CD-ROM describe fusion energy research and how it is coordinated and managed in Europe. The next generation fusion experiment, ITER, should pave the way in the second half of the 21st century for fusion to provide a significant contribution to the world's energy production.
ln its decision on the Euratom Specific Programme, the Council of Ministers said: 'Fusion energy could contribute in the second haIf of the century to the emission-free large-scale production of base-Ioad electricity. The advances made in fusion energy research justify the further pursuit of a vigorous effort towards the long-term objective of a fusion power plant.' This booklet describes fusion energy research and how it is coordinated and managed in Europe. The next generation fusion experiment, ITER, should pave the way in the second half of the 21st century for fusion to provide a significant contribution to the world's energy production. The information in this book/et has been compiled from the research activities of the European fusion programme
