Distributing the Costs of Nuclear Core Melts: Japan’s Experience after 7 Years
Book chapter, 2019
Based on the three Special Business Plans published by TEPCO since the nuclear disaster, this evolving perception of the economic consequences and the increasingly complicated repayment schemes are described.
The conclusion of the authors are that the repayment schemes are not com- patible with a future efficient, competitive electricity market.
It is suggested that other governments who implicitly or explicitly accepting economic liabilities for nuclear accidents prepare themselves in order to avoid un-necessary indirect cost after future reactors accidents.
