Australia’s first laser fusion energy company HB11 Energy will launch a $22 million project to develop the next-generation high-power lasers needed to create a multi-billion dollar nuclear fusion energy industry from Australia, and export this capability to the world. The HB11 Energy project forms part of a $50 million Trailblazer grant awarded to the University… Read More
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
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
- 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
LASER FUSION OF HYDROGEN AND BORON-11
Australia’s first fusion energy company HB11 Energy has demonstrated a world-first ‘material’ number of fusion reactions by a private company, producing ten times more fusion reactions than expected based on earlier experiments at the same facility. HB11 Energy’s world-first results were published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal, Applied Sciences, and demonstrate non-thermal fusion of hydrogen… Read More
Thanks to those of you who have expressed an interest in investing in HB11 Energy. We are pleased to announce that HB11 Energy is now raising capital! We are seeking to raise USD$20m to fund the next stage of research as our global scientific team moves to meet a series of science and engineering milestones… Read More
PROFESSOR HEINRICH HORA,Dr.rer.nat., D.Sc., FAIP, FInstP(London), FRSN
DR. WARREN MCKENZIE, Ph.D.
HB11 Energy has appointed a Scientific Advisory Board consisting of the few experts in the field of Laser Fusion. As heads of internationally significant research facilities, they have been crucial to designing the next-stage POC protocol.
HB11 Energy has recently appointed Professor Dimitri Batani as Lead Scientist, responsible for the scientific strategy intended to get HB11 to Net Energy Gain. The HB11 Energy Research Team is joined by collaborators from Australia, USA, Europe and Asia.
