Moving from coal to clean nuclear power in Wyoming, the Natrium Reactor Project will be built, providing jobs, and reliable, safe, resilient clean energy.
This is incredibly exciting as it will be the first next-gen (IV) reactor built in the United States. How it fits into the energy mix of today and tomorrow will be discussed by a lead on the project.


Join us for a Zoom talk and bring your questions.


We are fortunate to have Mark Werner, a mechanical engineer who develops and leads engineering teams that design advance reactor concepts focused on impacting future energy markets. Mark has worked in plant layout and design, reactor system and equipment design, reactor core design and fuel design in his past positions. Mark has worked for TerraPower for 10 years, and prior to that worked on Reactor designs for the US Navy’s nuclear fleet at Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory in upstate NY. Mark has a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Union College and B.S. in Mechanical Engineering (Drexel University).

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Nick will give a brief talk about how nuclear energy works, why we need it to slow down climate change, and especially to answer all your questions about safety, waste, radiation, and more. This is your chance to ask the questions that make you step back and take a breath when you hear us say we need nuclear!
