@article{osti_, title = {Nuclear power: Futures, cost and benefits}, author = {Evans, N. and Hope, C.}, abstractNote = {This book provides an analysis of the costs and benefits of nuclear power, its future prospects and the implications for future policy.

It looks at the risks involved; the consequences both locally and elsewhere of an accident (the overall economic. Once this is accepted, it has many implications for how we decide on nuclear futures both at the national and international level.

Social cost-benefit analysis The essence of cost-benefit analysis is simple. The aim is to establish all the costs and benefits relating to a given project or programme and to rank projects by a benefit cost by:   Summary: The average nuclear power plant must comply with a regulatory burden of at least $ million annually.

Currently, construction of a new plant begins after waiting for nearly a decade for regulatory approval. While there are good reasons for nuclear security rules, nuclear energy is being placed at a distinct disadvantage compared to other [ ].

The nuclear industry has been struggling with ever-escalating construction costs (Davis,Kessides, ), and it is claimed that these cost increases are attributable in part to safety regulations.

8 Considering private costs alone, that is, not taking into account the social costs of nuclear power, the competitiveness of nuclear power is Cited by: Lower sea levels, the abatement of biodiversity loss, and cleaner air are all potential social benefits derived from the pursuit of a zero carbon energy source like nuclear power (Fairley, ).

Additionally, the United States has such a large uranium mining capacity that it could achieve energy security by aggressively pursuing a nuclear option.

Social effects of building and operating nuclear power plants result from impacts upon (1) socially-valued aspects of the physical environment and (2) the social structure itself.

Sudden, temporary population growth during construction may strain financial and organizational resources of Cited by: 9. The sum of these two costs represents the full social cost of the generation source.

As the benefits of electricity are uniform between sources, meaning a unit of electric-ity creates the same amount of social benefits regardless the fuel from which it is generated, the generation source with the least social cost has the greatest social benefits.
