Energy Talks&Drinks – Future of nuclear energy

december 1, 2022 - 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Besides fluctuating solar- and wind energy, the world needs a stable base load energy source. Emission free nuclear energy can perfectly fulfill this need. Further the long-lived nuclear waste problem can be solved!

We have invited the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, updating us on our government policies on nuclear energy. Further we have invited Thorizon to present their NextGen nuclear reactor which uses long-lived nuclear waste and convert it to short-lived waste.

Do you want to learn more about the next generation nuclear power and how this potentially could help the energy transition in The Netherlands (and the rest of the world)?
Let’s find out during our last Energy Talks & Drinks of this year!


  • Martijn Schut, program director nuclear energy of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate. Martijn will share insights on the government policies on nuclear energy.
  • Sander de Groot, Co-Founder of Thorizon. Thorizon develops a next generation MSR nuclear power plant, that can use long-lived nuclear waste from ‘regular’ nuclear power plants as fuel, and convert it to short-lived waste. The patented reactor consists of replaceable modular reactor vessels, enabling off-site building and (re)fueling. Thorizon and its partners aim to have a reactor vessel prototype and a power plant design ready within 6 years to be able to fast track the realization of such NextGen nuclear power plants.
