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.
Edward Kee is a member of this Special Committee. A Nuclear Toolkit was developed that provides a wide range of ideas that may help states prevent additional early retirement of existing nuclear units and to help new nuclear projects. Version 1 of the The ANS Toolkit was released on 8 February 2016. Version 2 of the ANS Toolkit was released in June 2016.
