Abstract [en]

The demand for energy is forever growing. The technology of extracting power from uranium

through nuclear facilities is rather old. Core melting, nuclear bombs, uranium extraction costs

and the question what to do with the wastes has hindered countries from exploiting this

resource. The technology of extraction, containment and refinement has however come a far

way since the beginning. There is a need of revaluing this method of generating power. What

better way of doing this than making a cost and benefit analysis upon Nuclear Power. If the

costs of overweight the benefits, the governments should dismount the reactors in the

involved country. If it’s the other way around; benefits surpassing costs, there should be a

development within this sector. In this thesis we will analyze a cost-benefit-analysis of new

nuclear power generation in the UK. We will explain how a CBA is constructed, give some

examples of cost and benefits of nuclear power and with this knowledge we will then

critically look at the 2006 CBA of new nuclear power in UK (Kennedy) which compares costs

and benefits of nuclear new build with conventional gas-fired generation and low carbon

technologies.
