This threshold is met the year we build a fusion reactor that has run continuously for at least 24 hours at engineering breakeven (Q_E >= 1).

Engineering breakeven is defined here: **https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fusion_energy_gain_factor#Engineering_breakeven**

The fusion reactor must have been built by human civilization or one of its descendants in order to qualify in the context of this question.
