Meet the Team
We at The Binding Energy are proud to operate with strong values guiding our actions and decisions. These values are embodied in the acronym NICE, which stands for No-nonsense, Independent, Competence and Enthusiasm.
N: A no-nonsense approach towards its clients means that we are straightforward and honest in our dealings with clients, partners, and each other. We help our clients continuously improve their services and products in a critical and questioning way, but in a constructive atmosphere.
I: Our independence allows us to think creatively and make decisions that are in the best interests of our clients. We have no external investors, and can develop our own independent view on nuclear projects. This is quite unique in Belgium (and abroad). When it comes to safety, independence is the best possible position to guarantee an objective analysis.
C: TBE’s competence is evident in the quality of our work and the expertise of our team. We are a knowledge-based company with a ton of practical on-the-field experience. TBE wants to pick-up the ageing knowledge in the nuclear field. We base our conclusions on facts and figures. Our team members are motivated to continuously increase their expertise in external trainings and workshops.
E: And last but not least, we are a dynamic and enthusiastic young team, sharing already more than 50 years of experience, bringing an invigorating company profile to the nuclear market. Our company spirit is warm and empathic, we question each other in a constructive way, as we question our clients.
Our mission is to develop and share nuclear knowledge to support the nuclear industry in achieving their goals. By sharing our expertise and pursuing innovative projects, we strive to promote a safer and more sustainable future in the field of nuclear technology.
Our vision is to be the leading provider of independent, innovative, sustainable nuclear expertise. As we grow, our goal is to expand our reach and impact, becoming a recognized leader in the nuclear industry.
Founder / Nuclear Engineer

Partner / Nuclear Engineer
Koen holds a master of nuclear engineering (UHasselt – BE), and safety engineering at the KULeuven – BE. He joined The Binding Energy as a nuclear engineer in 2018.Read More
Koen also masters the physics of the wheel. Two wheels even, since he loves taking his mountain bike for a spin.
Joppe Van Gemert
Joppe holds a master in nuclear engineering (UHasselt – BE), and safety engineering at the KULeuven – BE. He joined The Binding Energy as a nuclear engineer in 2020.Read More
Joppe’s strong team skills might just stem from his passion for basketball. You’ll often find him shooting hoops with his team mates.
Robby holds a master of nuclear engineering (UHasselt – BE). He joined The Binding Energy as a nuclear engineer in 2021.Read More
This critical view may come in handy, because outside of engineering Robby also loves photography.

In his spare time, Daan enjoys spending his time in nature, by either taking a long walk or a brisk run.
