CLEAN ENERGY. EVERYWHERE. FOREVER.
GENERAL FUSION IS TRANSFORMING THE WORLD’S ENERGY SUPPLY WITH CLEAN, SAFE, AND ABUNDANT FUSION ENERGY

Date: Wednes­day, June 14, 2017 – 6 pm to 9 pm

DR. MICHEL LABERGE, FOUNDER AND CHIEF SCIENTIST
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. Michel 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.
Times New Roman;”>General Fusion has been rec­og­nized glob­al­ly for its work in clean ener­gy tech­nol­o­gy, and is a mem­ber of the Clean­tech Glob­al 100 (2014, 2015, 2016/17) 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.
