ABOUT THE FIA
We are the voice of the private fusion industry
About the FIA
The Fusion Industry Association is a non-profit organization composed of private companies composed of private companies working to make commercial fusion energy a reality.
Together, we’re accelerating the development of commercial fusion energy through advocacy and education. FIA is driven by a passionate belief that affordable, clean energy is desperately needed in the world, and that fusion power is a viable solution.
As fusion grows into a new industry, it needs a level playing field. That’s why we support efforts across the private, public and philanthropic sectors to accelerate the development of tomorrow’s fusion power economy.
Our Guiding Principles
Since our beginning as a cooperative initiative, Fusion Industry Association has focused on the following priorities for accelerating fusion energy.
The private sector should have access to the scientific research that the government has been working on for decades.
With Public-Private partnerships, private fusion companies can accelerate development and drive new investment.
Ensuring Regulatory Certainty
The laws regulating fusion energy should be clear, fair, and encourage new ideas while assuring the safety and security of the public.
Due to their fundamental differences, fusion energy regulations must be separate from nuclear fission and should not require the same lengthy permitting processes for each new facility.
Building a Global Fusion Energy Industry
The FIA supports efforts by private, public, and philanthropic organizations to help develop a fusion energy economy in the near future.
Fusion does not need special treatment, but should have equal opportunities as it becomes an emerging and independent industry.
