Stranded Nuclear Waste: Implications of Electric Industry Deregulation for Nuclear Plant Retirements and Funding of Decommissioning and Spent Fuel

Client:

Synapse prepared an analysis of nuclear power plant issues in the context of electricity industry restructuring.  The analysis included three integrated parts: (a) the prospects of premature nuclear power plant closure, (b) the potential unfunded liability for nuclear plant decommissioning, and (c) the potential unfunded liability for spent nuclear fuel transportation and storage.  Project completed in 1999.
