ABSTRACT
The article discusses evidence showing that nuclear energy has always been significantly more expensive than alternative energy sources. Topics addressed include its higher cost compared to low-carbon alternatives, the implications of offering a feed-in tariff (FIT) to nuclear power developers, and large transmission costs imposed by very large nuclear reactors. Also mentioned are the social cost of carbon in the long-term climate perspective and nuclear power's macroeconomic impact.
