The grand challenge of developing a new energy source based on fusion power has led to the creation of a private fusion industry. In conjunction with the “bold decadal vision” initiated by the White House, many of the private fusion companies expect to see fusion power become a reality in the 2030’s. Growth is necessary in numerous industries in order to accomplish this vision: some of these industries are emerging, high-technology (superconducting wire, radiation tolerant materials, lasers) and some are more conventional (steel, concrete, software). Large fusion facilities in the public sector have required identifying industrial capabilities for these facilities’ specific needs, which provides lessons learned, but is only one step towards the scale-up required for an expanding fusion power industry. This symposium is intended to present the current state of the fusion supply chain, lessons learned from exiting facilities, a look ahead to what is needed, and a consideration of what is needed to fill the gap.

Topics & Application Areas
