CLEAN, SAFE, RELIABLE AND UNLIMITED ENERGY

HB11 Energy is developing Laser Hydrogen Boron-11 fusion to provide a new source of unlimited, clean, safe and reliable energy. Our mission is to generate electricity using laser-ignited non-thermal fusion.



“Since the discovery of lasers in 1960, the pursuit of Hydrogen Boron-11 fusion has been my dream. Despite much skepticism over 60 years of research, this dream has come true at a time when its potential as a new source of unlimited, clean, safe and reliable energy is needed more than ever.”

– Professor Heinrich Hora
Theoretical Physicist and Founder of HB11 Energy


OUR VISION – a new source of unlimited, clean, safe, reliable energy

The global energy crisis is real, ongoing and in fact, it’s getting worse. It’s primary cause is our reliance on non-renewable sources, which in turn produce carbon emissions that have created climate change. But even renewables like wind and solar have limitations in terms of the very large-scale and long term energy storage they require. The solution is Fusion Energy.

HB11 Energy aims to create a new source of clean, safe and reliable energy using laser technology to fuse hydrogen and boron-11. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, while boron-11 comprises some 80% of all boron found in nature, is readily available and is a stable, non-radioactive isotope.

Unlike other nuclear and fossil-fuel burning plants, our energy generating process does not require large plants with steam turbines and does not generate any dangerous radioactive waste. There’s no risk of a reactor meltdown and the energy generated can be directed straight to the grid.

HB11 is the future of clean energy. We’re creating the possibility of a world powered by clean, safe and unlimited electricity, generated by small reactors that use abundant fuels and do not create any harmful waste.

no radioactive waste

NO RISK OF REACTOR MELT-DOWN
FUEL IS UNLIMITED AND SAfe
LOW INFRASTRUCTURE COSTS

HB11 TECHNOLOGY – HOW IT WORKS

  • Electricity generated directly – Steam turbines not required
  • Not intermittent – reducing the need for very expensive electricity storage infrastructure required for solar and wind energy
  • Scalable – Ideally suited for both grid integration and remote power generation
  • Lack of radioactive materials – will open new market opportunities not possible with fission-based nuclear plants or DT fusion reactor concepts
