As you may have noticed, fusion energy development is gaining momentum and there's been significant investment by the private sector for a few years now. The UK leads the way in fusion energy research and the UK government seems to be making fusion energy a key focus with significant investment, such as the STEP project. Amongst all the professional engineering institutions, the IET is the most natural home for the professional hub of "fusioneering" because most fusion energy devices are fundamentally electrical machines. I think the IET should be leading the way in furthering the engineering aspects of fusion energy, however first we need to organise ourselves and understand who our members are and where our expertise is. We don't have a "fusion energy technical network", so the most natural home for us for now is the Nuclear Engineering Technical Network Nuclear engineering, which I am part of.
So, who amongst us also works in fusion energy, like me?
