About UK Atomic Energy Authority

ccfe banner 1

Nuclear fusion has the potential to change our world. Fusion – the process that powers the Sun – offers low-carbon energy with virtually limitless fuels. Bringing it to the electricity grid is one of the grand challenges in technology, but potentially one of the most rewarding.

The UK Atomic Energy Authority’s mission is to lead the commercial development of fusion power and related technology, and position the UK as a leader in sustainable nuclear energy.

Based at Culham Science Centre near Oxford, we run the UK’s fusion research programme and operate the Joint European Torus (JET) experiment on behalf of scientists from 28 European countries. We are keeping Britain at the forefront of fusion as the world comes together to build the first reactor-scale experience, ITER – one step away from electricity from fusion. In addition we aim to make the UK the place where the first fusion power stations are designed.

We have a range of programmes that support this work including:

Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE), which is the UK’s national fusion lab with world-leading expertise in fusion science and engineering.
Material Research Facility (MRF) which is a new lab for UK nuclear researchers to study the materials needed for the reactors of the future.
Robotics for Challenging Environments (RACE) this programme is developing robotics and remote handling technology – not just for fusion but for other industries with conditions that are difficult for humans to work in.
Oxfordshire Advanced skills – which provides high quality apprenticeship training to meet the demand for skills in the Thames Valley’s high tech industries.
Fusion Technology Facilities which will work with industry to provide testing and manufacturing facilities to meet the challenges of building future fusion power stations.
H3AT – will build on UKAEAs expertise in dealing with radioactive tritium fuel – offering new facilities to industry to ensure the UK leads the world in fusion fuel cycle management.
