Hydrogen Fusion and Other Energy Technologies Focus of May 19-20 Conference in Washington


As the nation approaches the summer season-and its higher gas prices and steeper electricity bills- scientists will gather at the SEIU Conference Center (1800 Massachusetts Ave., NW [Metro: Dupont Circle]) on May 19 and 20 to focus on current and near-term energy future technologies.

The conference-“Hybrid Fusion Systems: What Can They Do and Can They Do It Soon?”-will consider the place of these technologies in the larger energy environment and the current regulatory picture. It is co-sponsored by the Center for Hydrogen Fusion Power at New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and the Brookings Institution.

Presenters will explore interdisciplinary topics through a series of invited papers. Subjects will include fusion, fission, and hybrid systems, waste treatment, non-proliferation, and regulation. Its organizers seek to forge a consensus that will support the formation of a private industry-government partnership to build a hybrid system that will perform a specific, useful function.

Speakers include: Andrew Kadak, a professor of nuclear engineering at MIT; Kathryn McCarthy, Idaho National Laboratory; Eric Storm, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; and Michael Zarnstorff, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. Also in attendance will be Steven Fetter, assistant director at-large at White House Office of Science and Te 500
