Oxfordshire and the future of energy

New Road Baptist Church, Bonn Square, Oxford OX1 1LQ

The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) is creating a new type of sustainable, low carbon energy for the future, and they’re not alone. A growing number of companies are harnessing the power of the stars and transforming Oxfordshire into a hub of plentiful energy: a fusion cluster!

Join the discussion around ‘Why Oxfordshire?’ and hear about plans for the future of fusion energy.

Valerie Jamieson is Fusion Cluster Technology Manager at UK Atomic Energy Authority. Her role is to encourage collaboration, knowledge sharing and innovation between companies and organisations interested in fusion energy and all the exciting technologies that make it happen. She recently joined UKAEA after many years at New Scientist and has a PhD in particle physics.
