Nuclear fusion could be a potential world-changing energy source. As the UK begins work on a £22m test facility to build on the work of the Culham Laboratory, the Joint European Torus project and private sector players such as Tokamak Energy, we find out if the nation is best placed to lead the charge on fusion.
Also, we look at the regulatory infighting holding up the first major US offshore windfarm, dig into the potential of geothermal energy in the UK, and ask whether a new project could make bioreactors competitive.
Finally, we examine a technology that claims to make coal more efficient and cleaner, ask whether the European Pressurised Reactor has a future, dive into the merits of floating nuclear power, and analyse Angela Merkel's green legacy.
