How Fusion Research Led to Power Management Spinoff: BNEF Q&A

To meet TAE Technologies’ needs for its experimental fusion device, Norman, the company came up with a solution — one that would involve a bespoke power supply system using a combination of algorithms and hardware. The same kinds of fluctuations required for a fusion reactor, TAE realized, were similar to the fluctuations in demand needed in electric mobility and for energy storage applications. TAE, in meeting Norman’s requirements, took it a step further, developing a spinoff called TAE Power Solutions.
