Next World is for the Electrical Energy. All countries are searching for alternate way Gasoline they are moving for electric vehicles or thou vehicles who have both of theses features. Heat Energy can be converted into electrical energy for example production of Electricity from COAL. :D :D :D

inertial confinement using lasers has laser efficiency of c.1%
so an apparent 70% 'response' is arguably 0.7% in efficiency terms

also there's ....

(Walter Marshall told the UK over 60 years ago 'in 60 years fusion electricity will too cheap to meter')

btw
as I posted somewhere else the UK is now making c.83m turbine blades
and has agreed investment to extend to 100+m blade manufacturing capability and 'in-house' turbine tower capability
(and investment for an additional large-scale hydrogen domestic heating trial)

I am a big fan of fusion, and think it is 'the saviour of humankind'. However, since I watched this vid (I always watch her vids they are good) I have had a creeping feeling it is not a near future prospect.

I think the quote is "Fusion energy is only 30 years away, and always will be"
