Nuclear Power Economics, Old and New

September 28, 2017 | 2:00-3:00pm ET

In the second installment of Synapse’s Third Thursday webinar series, we’ll explore nuclear power economics. Synapse staff members have been analyzing Indian Point nuclear power plant issues since the early 1980s. In 2017, New York officially announced the impending closure of Indian Point. Principal Associate Bob Fagan and Associate Spencer Fields, authors of our report (for Riverkeeper and Natural Resources Defense Council) on replacement energy and capacity resources associated with Indian Point’s retirement, will discuss the use of ReEDS modeling in their most recent analysis. They’ll discuss challenges such as accounting for energy efficiency, New York state policies, and other endogenous inputs. Moderator Bruce Biewald (CEO/Founder) will provide historical context based on Synapse’s long history with Indian Point. Principal Associate Max Chang will join the conversation to illuminate how nuclear power economics have changed in the last decade. He’s the author of Synapse’s upcoming update to its Nuclear Power Plant Construction Costs report, first published in 2008.
