Mendelevitch: New discussion paper on the financing and organization of the decommissioning of the German nuclear power plants published

 

New discussion paper on the financing and organization of the decommissioning of the German nuclear power plants published

 

The discussion paper analyzes whether the legislative package on "Reassignment of Responsibility in Nuclear Waste Management" ultimately benefits the general public. To this end, it introduces a two-stage stochastic optimization system, which details the various stages of dismantling and the resulting waste flows and storage levels of low and medium waste, as well as the associated costs.
