Nuclear Energy Solutions Inc. (NESI) provides consulting, media, and advocacy services regarding nuclear energy activities, ranging from the creation of advanced reactors, especially in the marine environment, to decommissioning of nuclear facilities and spent fuel disposal.


Nuclear power not only produces electricity, but has many other actual and potential uses, such as on a 'micro' level for medical treatment and in agriculture, and a 'macro' level for propelling a rocket, or powering a desalinization plant, or making ammonia for fertilizer. Additionally, nuclear plants are reliable, versatile, have a small 'footprint', and can be used for many other applications, such as providing the high levels of heat required by certain industrial processes.

One issue that the nuclear industry has historically faced is public perception of nuclear energy. Perhaps because people can see the sun or feel the wind, they feel more comfortable with these forms of energy than with nuclear. Also, some people seem concerned with accidents which are rare, or nuclear waste which is manageable; others make a misguided association of nuclear energy with nuclear weapons. However, climate change, resiliency, and energy security seem far more pressing concerns in today's world, and increasing the supply of nuclear energy is critical to addressing these challenges. Most people who know about nuclear energy appreciate that its significant advantages outweigh its impediments. One way to accelerate people embracing nuclear energy is to have it explained openly and pragmatically, so people can understand and appreciate its advantages and benefits.


One significant deployment of Advanced Reactors should be in the commercial maritime sector.   The U.S. Navy has proven that nuclear-powered vessels can be successful on the high seas.  The new Advanced Reactors could have a life approximately as long as the life of a ship, and could not only be used for propulsion, but for other shipboard uses as well, such as powering gear to load or unload a ship either on board the vessel or with shoreside gear.  Also, SMRs (Small Modular Reactors) could be used to power other maritime endeavors, such as floating power plants or rigs, or during military operations, or after a natural disaster when the normal power supply is interrupted.


Decommissioning or dismantling of a nuclear power plant is a complex process, which takes many years and costs hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars to complete. Although the nuclear waste is dealt with by the operator while the plant produces energy, there may be a new owner during and after decommissioning, who would be responsible for safeguarding the nuclear waste indefinitely. These activities need to be monitored to assure that they are accomplished safely.
