About

The Workshop on Extreme Energy: From Breakthroughs to Commercialization, organized by Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, brings stakeholders from industry, government, and academia together to identify the opportunities and challenges associated with utilization of extreme energy sources (with working temperatures above 500 K) to power human civilization on Earth and beyond.  Energy from extreme sources such as fusion, enhanced geothermal, and space-based/concentrated solar, although viewed as high-risk or “moonshot” technologies, have the potential to provide sustainable and clean power if resourced safely and scaled appropriately.  A radical blend of subject matter experts in science, engineering, venture, and policy provides a unique forum to bridge the gaps necessary to build momentum and bring pivotal scientific breakthroughs to actual commercialization—in time to make a difference.

Participants will be co-authors of the white paper titled, “Extreme Energy: From Breakthroughs to Commercialization,” via interactive facilitation activities conducted during the workshop.

This event is co-sponsored by Longview Fusion Energy Systems, Pacific Fusion, Stanford University, & SLAC.
