Fusion makes its introduction in COP24


COP24 is the informal name for the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) which commenced in 1994 and has near-universal membership today. The Conference of the Parties (COP) is the supreme body convention, and it consists of the representatives of the Parties. The COP takes decisions which are necessary to ensure the effective implementation of the provisions of the Convention and regularly reviews the implementation of these provisions. COP24 will take place in Katowice, Poland, from 2-14 December 2018.

“Climate Change – The New Economy” is the key publication for COP as it provides the stage for world leaders, government and NGO representatives to present their vision, as well as for scientists, experts and companies to offer technological solutions for the future. The publication is released a few weeks before the conference. In this year’s edition, Johannes Schwemmer, F4E Director,  advocates in favour of fusion as an “abundant, safe and sustainable energy for the future”, underlines the importance of ITER as “an essential step to binging the power of the sun to earth”, and highlights the role of the EU in the quest for fusion energy.
