Lawrence Livermore fusion experiment achieves energy break-even

A team at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s National Ignition Facility (NIF) conducted the first controlled fusion experiment to achieve energy break-even; meaning, it produced more energy from fusion than the laser energy used to drive it. LLNL’s experiment surpassed the fusion threshold by delivering 2.05 megajoules (MJ) of energy to the target, resulting in 3.15 MJ of fusion energy output, demonstrating for the first time “a most fundamental science basis for inertial fusion energy (IFE)”. » Read more

Tax credit for energy retrofits in British Columbia

In British Columbia, a new tax credit targeting multi-unit residential and commercial buildings will save owners 5% on energy retrofits. “Building owners want to reduce the energy use of their home, office or retail space, but the upfront costs of these retrofits can be a challenge for people,” said Selina Robinson, Minister of Finance. “This Clean Building Tax Credit will help owners of larger—often older and energy-inefficient buildings—invest in cleaner energy retrofits by putting dollars back into their pockets.” » Read more
