The demonstration power plant: DEMO
DEMO will be ITER’s successor
The DEMOnstration power plant, DEMO, will be ITER’s successor. With the transition from ITER to DEMO, fusion will go from a science-driven, lab-based exercise to an industry-driven and technology-driven programme. A key criteria for DEMO is the production of electricity although not at the price and the quantities of commercial power plants. Laying the foundation for DEMO is the objective of the EUROfusion Power Plant Physics & Technology (PPPT) Work Programme.
