From Troy Carter: The subcommittee report "Powering the Future: Fusion & Plasmas" has been posted on the FESAC website here:
I want to extend my sincerest gratitude to the subcommittee members and to all of you. This has been a two-year effort to create a new vision for fusion energy and plasma science research. Our report would not have been possible without the heavy lift that was the Community Planning Process and the CPP report. Throughout this effort, community members participated in meetings, workshops, interviews and focus groups. When called upon, people volunteered considerable time and effort to help inform the process. I am grateful.
As I have said many times, a top priority for the subcommittee's work has been to maintain the consensus vision embodied in the CPP report. We hope that you see that consensus message amplified in our report. More importantly, we hope that you are inspired by it and find it worthy of your support.
A reminder that the report is not final without FESAC approval; it will be considered and discussed at next week's meeting. I hope to "see" many of you there; it is a public meeting and everyone is welcome to listen in to the discussion.
