EXPERIENCE
Mr. Stewart-Smith served with the Oregon Department of Energy for over 20 years, becoming the Energy Resource Division Administrator in August 1989, and Assistant Director in 2003.
 
From 1989 to 2005, Stewart-Smith served as Secretary of the Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council, a seven-member citizen board charged with making consolidated siting decisions under Oregon law. He oversaw the Department's programs in large energy facility siting review, radioactive materials transport and disposal, renewable energy resource development, and energy resource policy issues. Stewart-Smith was the Oregon Governorís liaison to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission from 1989 to 2005 and Oregonís delegate to the NW Interstate Low Level Radioactive Waste Compact from 1985 to 2005.
 
Major undertakings during Stewart-Smithís tenure with the Oregon Department of Energy included reviewing eleven new power plant proposals, reviewing significant additions to Oregonís electric transmission and natural gas infrastructure, and overseeing several low-level radioactive waste site clean-ups. His career began in 1974 as an analytical radiochemist, monitoring the environment surrounding the new Trojan Nuclear Plant. In early 2005, his division approved the final decommissioning of the Trojan nuclear power plant.
 
Stewart-Smith was also a health physicist and manager of Oregon's radiation accident response team for part of the 10+ years he worked for the Oregon Health Division. The Health Division regulates the use of radioactive materials in Oregon under delegation from the U.S. NRC.
 
On August 29, 2005, Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski appointed Stewart-Smith chair of the Carbon Allocation Task Force. The purpose of the 23-member task force is to examine the feasibility of, and develop a design for, a load-based carbon allowance standard for Oregon. Adoption of this standard would reduce total amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions due to consumption of electricity, petroleum and natural gas. The task force will deliver its recommendations to the Governor in time to prepare a legislative proposal for consideration during the 2007 session of the Oregon State Legislature.
