    The World's energy needs by the mid century, when its population is expected to reach 10 billion, is projected to be 10-30 Terrawatts of carbon free power. The fusion hybrid reactor is uniquely suited to meet these needs since it is self-fueling, can produce abundant power safely, and securely for decades.
