trade with neighbouring countries. System upgrades needed. 7% of power lost in transmission. Fusion and Public Opinion Environmental Risk (1 very low, 5 very high) Public perception of risk associated with different energy sources 5 4 3 2 1 Carried out by Focus Groups analysis based around siting of ITER in Cadarache. This is somewhat at odds with the externalities assessment. Better information on fusion required, or underestimation of risks from other sources (e.g. biomass pollution)? Public support for future energy strategies

Support for Strategy (1 none, 5 very strong) 5 4 3 2 1 Summary of Main Points Internal costs of fusion: - Fusion power stations will be able to load-follow, with some economic penalty. - International (EU and US) benchmarking studies show generally good agreement in the overall cost of plant and cost of electricity. - Complex strong linkages between plasma physics, technology and economics have been elucidated. External costs of fusion: - External costs of plant models utilising silicon carbide in the blankets are extremely low, even lower than the earlier plant models. - For these models the largest contributions to the external costs are from conventional items such as accidents during construction. Summary of Main Points (2)

Fusion as part of the energy system: - The expected net present value of fusion development, derived from a probabilistic analysis, is substantially positive, in spite of the fact that successful commercial realisation is not certain. - Modelling of the future energy market in India, with pollution constraints, shows that the growth in coal use is suppressed, in spite of the large growth in electricity consumption, and fusion is introduced. - Looking at a future electricity network as a whole there is additional value in lowcarbon energy sources, such as fusion, that can provide firm power in diverse geographical locations. This additional value derives from transmission and network stability considerations. Summary of Main Points (3) Fusion and public opinion: - There is a generally favourable public view of fusion as part of the future energy system, although there are apparent deficiencies in the information that is reaching the public.
