In the electric power system, electricity supply needs to be balanced with electricity demand and network losses at all times to maintain safe, dependable and stable system operation. Flexibility within the power system is required to compensate for variability in supply and demand and maintain its balance. Historically, variability and uncertainty in the system mainly occurred on the demand side. This variability was to be matched top down through flexible conventional power plants and a reliable grid.

Material issues pose a significant challenge for future fusion reactors like DEMO and highly integrated approach is required. Cracking, oxidation as well as fuel management are driving issues when deciding for new materials. Neutron induced effects e.g. transmutation adding to embrittlement are crucial to material performance. Here advanced materials e.g. Wf/W composites allow the step towards a fusion reactor. Recent developments in the area of Wf/W will be presented showing a possible path towards a component based on standard tungsten production technologies.
