Fusion Energy: Actions Needed to Finalize Cost and Schedule Estimates for U.S. Contributions to an International Experimental Reactor
Frank Rusco (au)
The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) is an international research facility being built in France to demonstrate the feasibility of fusion energy. Fusion occurs when the nuclei of two light atoms collide and fuse together at high temperatures, which results in the release of large amounts of energy. The U.S. has committed to providing about 9% of ITER's construction costs, and the Dept. of Energy (DOE) is responsible for managing those contributions, as well as the overall U.S. fusion program. In FY 2014, the U.S. ITER Project received $199.5 million, or about 40% of the overall U.S. fusion program budget. This report examines (1) how and why the estimated costs and schedule of the U.S. ITER Project have changed since 2006; (2) the reliability of DOE's current cost and schedule estimates; and (3) actions DOE has taken to reduce U.S. ITER Project costs and plan for their impact on the overall U.S. fusion program. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
