ABOUT

Fusion power. No magnets required.

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

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

We achieved thermonuclear fusion in 2018 and are targeting scientific energy breakeven on our new FuZE-Q platform.

WHO WE ARE
Zap currently has over 80 employees based in two facilities near Seattle.
Zap Energy is backed by leading financial and strategic investors, including Lowercarbon Capital, Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Addition, Chevron Technology Ventures, DCVC, Energy Impact Partners (EIP),  Shell Ventures and Valor Equity Partners.
