The Blue Battery, for a sustainable and independent world | Mei Nelissen | TEDxUtrecht

  February 2016 Our energy network is extremely vulnerable; we are completely depended on energy generated by power stations, one attack on those and we lose our electricity and with that most of our power. Moreover, more energy is generated than is directly needed, the surplus is then wasted. Nineteen year-old Mei Nelissen has, together with a research group, come up with the Blue Battery, a device which enables us to store and generate electrical energy safely and more sustainable. Nineteen year old Mei Nelissen is studying Biology.

Making Safe Nuclear Power from Thorium | Thomas Jam Pedersen | TEDxCopenhagen

  November 2016 Thomas Jam Pedersen, engineer and co-founder of Copenhagen Atomics, was skeptical at first upon discovering and reading about thorium energy, which is present everywhere in the world and could technically provide an inexpensive energy supply for everyone for thousand years. While the world is still heavily relying on fossil fuels, thorium energy and nuclear reactors, which reuse nuclear waste, are now part of the energy debate, proposing a pollution-free solution that could provide an unlimited supply of fuel for the next millennium. Thomas Jam Pedersen aims to build a thorium molten salt reactor in Copenhagen, and introduce thorium energy to the public eye. Thomas Jam Pedersen is an engineer, who has extensive experience in software and simulations.
