Mark Cooper, Ph.D., Senior Fellow for Economic Analysis, Institute for Energy and the Environment, releases paper on "Nuclear Safety and Nuclear Economics" at University of PittsburghIn the wake of a severe nuclear accident the attention of policymakers, regulators, and the public is riveted on the issue of nuclear safety. Scrutiny is so intense that it seems like the only thing that matters about nuclear reactors is their safety. Cooper's paper shows that in fact, and for good reason, the central tension throughout the 50-year history of commercial nuclear power in the United States has been the relationship between the safety and economics of nuclear reactors, tension that is far from resolved.GP0|#ed7f8cda-6065-4792-a26a-43cc5bc34d38;L0|#0ed7f8cda-6065-4792-a26a-43cc5bc34d38|Press Release;GTSet|#ab900a8a-233b-4478-b62d-e61857e186fb;GPP|#fce88a62-61b7-435e-b14b-0c9e11ca0a2c2012-03-28T04:00:00Z179

Mark Cooper, Senior Research for Economic Analysis addresses the Canadian House of RepresentativesThe high cost and large capital expenditures associated with the construction of nuclear reactors makes the technology vastly more expensive and risky than alternative approaches to meeting the need for electricity. Because nuclear reactor projects are extremely complex and involve significant environmental and safety concerns, they are prone to cost overruns and other implementation risks. Their huge size and long lead times mean that marketplace or policy developments can eliminate the need for much of their capacity. Because of these characteristics, utilities cannot raise sufficient funds in capital markets to build them.GP0|#ed7f8cda-6065-4792-a26a-43cc5bc34d38;L0|#0ed7f8cda-6065-4792-a26a-43cc5bc34d38|Press Release;GTSet|#ab900a8a-233b-4478-b62d-e61857e186fb;GPP|#fce88a62-61b7-435e-b14b-0c9e11ca0a2c2011-03-24T04:00:00Z183
