As South Africa Prepares For New Build, The Question Is: How Much Will It Cost?

Critics of nuclear energy argue that South Africa’s plans to build up to 9,600 MW of new nuclear are too expensive for a country where the economy is fragile and political turbulence is worrying investors. Supporters say the levelised cost for nuclear is in the same range as other forms of energy and that South Africa is already losing money through power outages and slowed industrial growth. In this special report for subscribers, NucNet looks at the arguments on both sides, and at the possibility that site work on the multi-billion-dollar project could begin next year.

In this special report, NucNet editor-in-chief David Dalton takes a look at the case for both sides and at the conclusions of a major report which argued there is a “culture of denial” in the industry when it comes to the risks posed by hackers.
