AE Blue co-organized the Workshop on Extreme Energy: From Breakthroughs to Commercialization, organized by Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
Its goal was to bring stakeholders from industry, government, and academia together to identify the opportunities and challenges associated with utilization of extreme energy sources (with working temperatures above 500 K) to power human civilization on Earth and beyond.  Energy from extreme sources such as fusion, enhanced geothermal, and space-based/concentrated solar, although viewed as high-risk or “moonshot” technologies, have the potential to provide sustainable and clean power if resourced safely and scaled appropriately.  A radical blend of subject matter experts in science, engineering, venture, and policy provides a unique forum to bridge the gaps necessary to build momentum and bring pivotal scientific breakthroughs to actual commercialization—in time to make a difference.

3 AE Blue portfolio companies — and their founders — are quoted in a front-page New York Times article on fusion.
Reporter Kenneth Chang writes “a decade ago, a report by the National Academy of Sciences found much to like in the energy potential of laser fusion but recommended that the United States hold off major investments until ignition was achieved. That time is now.”
