Zap Energy is building a low-cost, compact and scalable fusion energy platform that connes and compresses plasma without the need for expensive and complex magnetic coils. Zaps sheared-flow-stabilized Z-pinch technology provides compelling fusion economics and requires orders of magnitude less capital than conventional approaches. Zap Energy has over one hundred team members in two facilities near Seattle and is backed by leading financial and strategic investors.

As a high-growth company in the emerging fusion energy industry, we are in the early stages of building a technology that could change history.
