About Zap

Fusion power. No magnets required.

Zap Energy is building a seriously cheap, compact, scalable fusion core with potentially the shortest path to commercially viable fusion and orders of magnitude less capital than traditional approaches.

This breakthrough technology confines and compresses plasma without costly and complex magnetic coils.

We have been generating verified fusion plasmas continuously since 2018 and are now targeting scientific energy breakeven on our FuZE-Q platform.
