UK and Canada unite for groundbreaking nuclear fusion innovation.

1 min read

The UK and Canada have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate on the development of nuclear fusion energy. The agreement will focus on advancing technologies related to the management of tritium, a key fuel for fusion energy. The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) and Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) have also signed a partnership agreement to work together on tritium-related projects. They will collaborate on research and development, regulatory harmonisation, and the development of skills and workforce. The partnership will specifically focus on managing hydrogen isotopes within the fusion fuel cycle, which involves handling, processing and reinjecting fuel into the plasma.

This partnership complements the UK-US partnership on fusion energy announced in November 2023. Both partnerships aim to accelerate the development of technologies critical to the commercialisation of fusion energy.
