Oak Ridge National Laboratory will partner with six companies working on fusion energy projects as part of the Department of Energy’s $46 million Milestone-Based Fusion Development program.

ORNL said Thursday its industry partners are among the eight awardees selected for submitting proposals that are relevant to the creation of a fusion pilot plant in five to 10 years.

On May 31, DOE announced that it will fund eight companies with novel ideas on the design, research and development for fusion power generation facilities. Two of the awardees were Focused Energy and Zap Energy.

ORNL’s collaborators are exploring areas such as affordable, robust, compact reactors; stellarator-enabled power plants; and the use of high-energy excimer driver and high-yield lithium-injection fusion power.

The laboratory will work with the following vendors:

  • Commonwealth Fusion Systems
  • Princeton Stellarators
  • Realta Fusion
  • Tokamak Energy
  • Type One Energy Group
  • Xcimer Energy
