Quote from the Washington Clean Technology Alliance:

Breaking News: Three WCTA members have received global recognition for their work.  Helion Energy and Phytelligence were recognized as stars of the international Cleantech Open competition in San Jose, California.  Silicon Energy won the Best in Solar and Wind for the Global Cleantech Cluster Association (GCCA) 2013 Later Stage Award in Helsinki, Finland.

For some time now, an idealized future fueled by unlimited, affordable fusion energy has said to be just a few years away.  Eight years ago, the Helion Energy team started developing a modestly sized reactor built in small modules.  The goal was to design a small, compact, safe, and commercially profitable fusion reactor.  In 2010, Helion Energy successfully demonstrated their third prototype and are now working towards a full scale commercial system.  Their technology has been validated with $5 million in DOE funding and an International Atomic Energy Agency award.
