Besides foundation and individual donor-supported work, IEER also does expert consulting work for a variety of clients, including environmental and peace non-governmental organizations, electric utilities and institutes, law firms, international consulting, governments, Native American communities, and news media, in the following areas:
- Cost and safety of nuclear energy systems
- Renewable energy and efficiency alternatives to nuclear and fossil fuel energy
- Licensing and relicensing of commercial nuclear facilities (on behalf of intervenors)
- Nuclear spent fuel management and deep geologic repository issues
- Nuclear fuel cycle issues, including reprocessing, uranium mining, etc.
- Health and environmental effects of nuclear weapons- and nuclear power-related facilities
- Radiation-related regulations concerning drinking water, air pollution, decommissioning, cleanup, and waste disposal
- Radiation dose reconstruction
- Developing country energy system evaluations
IEER has expertise on staff and also puts together teams of staff and external consultants for specific projects depending on the nature of the job. For instance, IEER did two projects evaluating the scientific aspects of the French nuclear waste repository program by using staff expertise as well as external geologic and mining safety experts (who constituted most of the project personnel). In contrast, IEER did a consulting job on radiation dose estimation for the national newspaper, USA Today, using only staff expertise.
IEER can also provide technical training workshops onsite on the topics listed above.
