Fusion power stands out as the principal energy source of tomorrow: clean, safe, and, in theory, limitless. Yet, Hidalgo urges caution as “the need for new strategies to generate, convert, and store power represents a colossal challenge,” while the dynamics of energy markets are increasingly impacted by the exponential growth of the population and demand. That is why he is encouraging us to meet this challenge with a vision of the future that continually defends a constant, coherent energy policy that strengthens the beneficial relationship between education, investigation, and innovation.

Carlos Hidalgo is a researcher and Director at the National Fusion Laboratory at the Center for Energy, Environmental, and Technological Research (CIEMAT Spain), where he currently directs the Experimental Physics Division. His research focuses on the study of high temperature plasma. He has worked in several laboratories in Europe, the US, and Japan. He has had numerous articles published in international journals on solid-state physics and on the physics of plasma in nuclear fusion. He complements his research with teaching.
