Abstract

Within a broad study of the economic case for and against nuclear power, the paper contends that for the UK government as well as private investors to take it as a serious alternative to renewables or gas, it will need to achieve `ordinariness¿ (i.e. cease to be treated as a special case). This regrettably remains a rather distant prospect. The paper has been widely cited in the more recent public debate on nuclear power.
