Are nuclear power plants economically feasible?
You may like them or you may not, but nuclear power plants will no doubt be proposed as alternatives to coal-fired power plants. Yes, the nuclear waste problem is significant, but nuclear plants emit negligble amounts of green house gases, and nuclear fuel is abundant. Dr. Jon Koomey thoroughly investigates past and future costs of nuclear power plants to help guide policy makers. Find out what has driven costs for plant constructions up in the past, and what can be done to keep them low.
