Globally charged environments can modify the rates of nuclear re- actions at the energies relevant for nuclear fusion energy production. This issue was addressed using the screening potential approach, deriving approximate an- alytical results for some scenarios of interest. The developed model predicts that fusion is hindered for reactions between thermal nuclei, while an enhancement is expected for secondary reactions and cluster Coulomb explosion beam-target reactions.
