Pegasus Fusion Strategies, Inc. (PFS) is a consulting firm founded by Jane Hotchkiss and Wally Johnston to bring fusion energy to the grid. Jane has a thirty year career working on clean energy, from policy to renewable development for NGO’s, private companies and the public. Wally has experience in the finance, med-tech and energy industries, as well as an entrepreneurial venture which is focused on providing carbon-free urban mobility solutions.
The co-founders have been engaged in fusion energy since 2013, after being introduced to MIT’s Plasma Science Fusion Center (PSFC), which had just published ARC, a blue print for net energy. Net energy is considered to be the “Holy Grail” of fusion research, meaning that more energy is produced from, than required to start, the fusion reaction.
Having been inspired by the work done at MIT, the founders formed Energy for the Common Good to augment the work of PFSC. They also educate external parties that fusion – the long awaited clean, non-carbon, inexhaustible fusion energy – is on a path to commercial availability in a relevant timeframe. This outreach has included NGO’s, legislators and other state and federal government officials, potential funding sources, as well as the larger energy industry.
