Abstract [en]

The general objective of this study is to examine the attitudes towards nuclear power inSweden by eliciting the people’s willingness to pay (WTP) for nuclear power.Moreover, this study aims to investigate what factors that have an influence on the WTPand examine whether the presence of information (about nuclear power) has an impacton the people’s attitudes towards nuclear power in Sweden. A contingent valuationmethodology (CVM) was employed to achieve these objectives. The study wasconducted using a questionnaire where the respondents were presented to a hypotheticalscenario where all the fossil-fired electricity generation sources in Sweden were to bereplaced by electricity from nuclear power in order to lower the carbon dioxide (CO2)emissions. The results indicated that there is a WTP for nuclear power in Sweden – toreplace fossil fuels. The average WTP was 4,0 öre/kWh, the Turnbull lower boundestimator was 5,7 kWh and finally the median of WTP was 6,0 öre/kWh. Theperception of nuclear power as a non-polluting alternative could be considered as themain motive behind the WTP- as none of the other attributes of nuclear power showedany significant results. Finally, the presence of information did not show any significantimpact on the people attitudes towards nuclear power in Sweden.
