While I am sure that knowledge of quantum mechanics is vital for getting fission and fusion reactors to work, I can't help noticing that the actual function of those reactors can be described purely with classical physics. Are there any proposals for quantum reactions to unlock energy? Perhaps quantum teleporting a proton through an insulator and making its electron go through a circuit to follow it? Perhaps if you defined a proton's velocity precisely enough it would be unable to be within an atom, thus causing fission. I found "Zero-point energy" but it doesn't look like something to replace coal any time soon.
