    The transition to renewable energy is a global priority to achieve long-term climate goals. To this end, governments are focusing their efforts on gradually installing renewable sources and using synthetic fuels to reduce carbon emissions in their energy matrices. However, they face challenges such as limited storage and seasonal intermittency in renewable energy production. In order to collaborate with these global objectives, this project addresses the development of an energy simulation environment for the self-sufficiency of countries through the integration of Nuclear-Renewable Systems with the final objective of allowing the analysis of sustainable electrical energy scenarios through production. of synthetic fuels in countries with high penetration of renewable energies, taking Chile and Belgium as a reference axis, two territories with collaboration in energy matters.The achievement of the development of this environment is carried out through the development of databases that enable the construction of an algorithm that allows estimating the potential for long-term electricity production and demand; the development of a tool capable of managing production and demand through the use of information in production databases; obtaining the projection of the energy evolution in both territories through the tool created and finally the simulation of the scenario that supplies periods with intermittent supply with synthetic fuels.The results obtained in the scenarios demonstrate reliability in the management according to the databases used and present for Chile a self-sufficiency with NRHES systems by the year 2100 as long as a gradual installation of small modular reactors of 3, 6 �� for low demand and 4.5 �� for medium demand; In Belgium this is achieved as long as a 6 �� installation is achieved by the year 2055 and 2 �� more until the year 2100. Finally, it is concluded that these results, obtained through NRHES, guarantee flexibility and scalability in the energy supply. However, its viability is conditional on the early installation of said reactors, as well as the continuation of ongoing research, obtaining certifications and considering political factors f
