The article reports on the decision of Tri Alpha Energy to raise $40 million in venture capital build an alternative energy platform for power generation that is capable of producing clean and abundant source of energy. According to Ray Rothrock of Venrock, one of the company's backers, the company is developing what is called hot or plasma fusion in which atomic nuclei are fused, releasing huge amounts of energy. He added that the company also uses a different method for containing and controlling fusion reactions, which happen at million-degree temperatures.
