Fusion energy is an essential technology that has the potential to supplement and eventually replace traditional power generation methods with environmentally friendly and sustainable energy sources. Attaining energy independence is a critical issue that encompasses national security, economic stability, and environmental preservation. It is of utmost importance that the US continues to lead the way in fusion energy development and adoption in order to secure our long-term national interests and ensure a sustainable future.

Fusion energy capability, as measured by plasma density, pressure, and confinement time, has doubled every 1.8 years from 1970 to 2005, comparable to the rapid growth in the number of transistors on silicon chips that drove the electronics industry. This exponential growth in efficiency challenges the previously held misconception that practical fusion energy remains perpetually out of reach [Windsor 2019]. The "triple product" of fusion energy capacity does not take into account other technological issues, such as materials and tritium breeding, but progress on these fronts has been equally consistent. Kronos Fusion Energy estimates that practical fusion energy is less than 20 years away, provided the necessary investments are made today.
