Abstract

It is becoming increasingly important to alleviate the environmental and health impacts of primary energy generation. A comparison of the costs for different abatement measures can provide guidance for the policy makers. This paper provides such a comparison between nuclear and coal-fired electricity production with special application to the USSR. The study is the result of cooperative work between the I.V. Kurchatov Atomic Energy Institute in Moscow, USSR, and the Social and Environmental Dimensions of Technologies (SET) Project at IIASA. It makes use of the methodologies developed for similar studies at the OECD.
