Tokamak Energy Claims Fusion Reactor By 2020

From NBCNews.com

Tokamak Energy, from Oxfordshire, believes that the third version of their compact, spherical tokamak reactor will be able to reach temperatures of 100 million degrees Celsius by 2020. That’s seven times hotter than the center of the sun and the temperature necessary to achieve fusion.

Tokamak Energy says its technology would be similar in costs to a nuclear fission plant, but without any fissile material and with no risk of meltdown. The company’s CEO, David Kingham, believes it will be possible for his team to transfer energy to the grid by 2030.

Perhaps this is a bit self-serving, but if these statements are true, Tokamak reactors could challenge the current LENR projects vying for commercial success.
