This week I interview Michl Binderbauer, CEO of TAE Technologies (TAE.com) about his research into nuclear fusion - the great hope for clean and (relatively) cheap energy. It's been predicted for 20 years hence for the last 50 years or so, but Michl believes that the breakthrough could now be reached within 10. And beyond that we could see direct transformation of heat into electricity, meaning we could finally abandon the 19th century technology of boiler-turbine-generator that every conventional power station, even nuclear stations, still uses.
