DEMO – the demonstration fusion machine to follow ITER— has always been a bit of an enigma.What will it look like, how many buildings will it have, will it resemble to ITER? F4E and EUROfusion joined forces to develop the first illustration of the entire power plant. The location is yet to be decided but according to its specifications it will demonstrate the production of about 500 MW of net electricity, the feasibility of closed-tritium cycle operation, and adequate maintenance systems. DEMO is part of Europe’s fusion roadmap aiming to contribute towards the sustainable energy mix of the future. F4E, in close collaboration with EUROfusion, is performing studies and in future will validate technologies.To download the poster click here
