Berkeley — Steve Nesbit, an expert in policy relating to nuclear power, has joined Deep Isolation as a Utilities Advisor.
Nesbit is the founder of LMNT Consulting Company and joins Deep Isolation as a consultant after a 40-year career in the nuclear power industry. Nesbit’s career included 37 years at Duke Energy, where he most recently served for nine years as Director of Nuclear Policy. Prior to that he was Spent Fuel Manager for the company and was heavily involved in nuclear industry technical and policy initiatives related to used fuel management. Nesbit also worked on several DOE projects including the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository and the Centralized Interim Storage Facility Project.
“It’s exciting to have yet another respected nuclear industry veteran join our team,” said Deep Isolation CEO Liz Muller. “His knowledge of how industry and government come together to address spent fuel management will play a critical role in progressing nuclear waste disposal.”
Nesbit received Bachelor of Science and Master of Engineering degrees in nuclear engineering from the University of Virginia. As a registered professional engineer in North Carolina, Nesbit was an adjunct faculty member at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where he taught nuclear engineering. Nesbit was ANS President from June 2021 to June 2022.
“It is essential that our country makes progress toward disposal of used nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste,” said Nesbit. “I very much look forward to being part of the Deep Isolation team, which has done excellent work and is bringing much-needed innovative approaches to this area.”
After just four years as a public-facing company, Deep Isolation’s milestones include: contracts with a dozen countries across three continents, 18 patents and 90 notices of invention; a subsidiary in Europe; the acquisition of Freestone Environmental Services in the U.S.; and recently, two multi-million awards from the U.S. Government.
