Market Development Plan
LPP is currently carrying out a series of experiments to test the scientific feasibility of Focus Fusion. This constitutes Phase I (the research phase) of our overall plan.
The goal of Phase 1 is to demonstrate beyond doubt that enough fusion energy is generated with Focus Fusion so that net energy production is possible with reasonable efficiencies of conversion of energy directly to electricity. This would be a tremendous breakthrough and would solve the scientific problem of fusion energy production.
LPP believes that once scientific feasibility is demonstrated, it should be relatively easy to raise the funds necessary for Phase 2 (development) from a combination of government and private sources.
A successful completion of Phase 1 will essentially assure technical success, as no new technology will be needed for Phase 2, just an adaptation of existing technology. There is no other technology that can compete with Focus Fusion as it will produce energy at costs far less than any other current process or technology.
In Phase 2, we will develop the Focus Fusion device as a repetitively-pulsed reactor, develop the conversion devices to convert the ion beams and X-rays to electricity using mainly existing technology, and perfect the cooling system and electrical control system. We will also optimize the fusion energy generation efficiency. At the end of Phase 2, which LPP estimates will take three years, we plan to have the world’s first fusion reactor producing net electricity.
In Phase 3, LPP will market the Focus Fusion devices. We believe that the fastest and lowest-risk method of doing this is through selling non-exclusive licenses for the technology. LPP will continue protecting its intellectual property rights with patents in addition to those already granted in the US and Australia. Likely initial licenses might include governmental agencies of oil-importing countries, such as Japan, France and Italy.
