Carbon Pricing Not Enough to Help Nuclear Power

Viewpoint by Edward Kee; World Nuclear News, 8 June 2016

This viewpoint explains why politically feasible carbon pricing is too little, too late, and too uncertain to financially support nuclear power.  Instead, direct compensation to nuclear power for clean energy and other attributes will be required. This Viewpoint is based on a presentation given by Edward Kee at the IFNEC/NEA Nuclear Finance Conference in Paris in May 2016.
