The STEP (Spherical Tokamak for Energy Production) programme is currently expected to create over 3000 jobs during the construction phase in the 2030s at the site in West Burton in Nottinghamshire, as well as support thousands of high-skilled jobs in the UK’s fusion supply chain. These estimates will be refined over the coming years as the programme progresses.
