 The UK is home to the world’s largest magnetic fusion experiment and the UK Atomic Energy Authority has started work on a new nuclear test facility in Rotherham. We hear from two UKAEA directors about how the UK could be poised to lead a nuclear fusion revolution. 

We also examine how agency infighting is stalling America's offshore wind ambitions, consider the prospects for geothermal energy in the UK, ask whether wind-powered algae could make bioreactors competitive, and learn how dehydration tech is reviving the 'clean coal' concept.

Plus, we find out if there is still a future for the European Pressurised Reactor, take a look at whether or not floating nuclear is a good idea, and analyse Angela Merkel's green legacy.  /
