Abstract

This policy essay asserts that the "35 year" plan recently adopted by the U.S. Department of Energy's Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Committee is too risk averse and too costly. An alternative "18 year" schedule is proposed. All dollar amounts shown below are undiscounted, and are only intended to be indicative of approximate future costs.
