Dr. Michel Laberge

Founder and Chief Scientist, General Fusion

In his pursuit of fusion energy, Michel and his company General Fusion have the potential to transform the energy landscape. Fusion is the ultimate carbon-free energy source; derived from sea-water and with zero emissions, no long-lived waste, and at costs comparable to fossil fuels. Since 2002 General Fusion has transformed Canada into a leading commercial fusion development hub, collecting 29 patents, employing 65 scientists, and raising over $100 million in capital, much of it internationally sourced.  Its technology leadership has also enhanced Canada’s reputation world-wide, something on which other Canadian clean tech companies capitalize when seeking talent or capital.
