Note Editore

Nuclear Energy- Economic Analysis and Environmental Impact guides the reader through all elements required to make an informed decision on new nuclear power plants and provides analysis of the environmental benefits in comparison to other renewable energy sources. The book covers the economic factors, environmental benefits, and policy issues of nuclear power generation to improve public perception and increase the deployment of nuclear in the energy mix. Readers are provided with an essential toolkit to assess nuclear projects which enables them to perform a levelized cost analysis of power generation and compare different renewable generation technologies.

Sections cover the historical deployment of nuclear power and its corresponding costs, compare fission technologies to other advanced systems, address the main concepts of economic and financial analyses, power plant structure components, and principles of Monte Carlo methods for uncertainty analysis, and delve into how various elements of the electricity grid interact. In addition, other renewable electricity sources alongside their advantages, disadvantages, and foreseeable capacities are presented.

  • Presents nuclear generation in the context of electricity needs, environmental benefits, potential hazards, public acceptance and energy policy
  • Provides alternatives for integrated clean electricity systems
  • Includes guidance on how to perform an economic and financial assessment for the deployment of nuclear plants across all regions
