A energia de fusão vai chegar à rede eléctrica

A Agência Europeia para o Desenvolvimento da Fusão Nuclear (EFDA) publicou um roteiro que descreve os passos para fornecer energia eléctrica baseada em fusão à rede pública por volta de 2050. O documento Roteiro para a concretização da energia de fusão organiza este processo em oito missões.
