Assessment and Plausibility Check of the 2016 Cost Study by swissnuclear
The owners of the Swiss nuclear power plants are obliged by law to make payments to a decommissioning and a disposal fund, which must cover the costs of decommissioning and disposal costs incurred after the plant has been decommissioned. The funds are managed by the public decommissioning and disposal fund STENFO. The basis for determining the contributions to be paid annually to the Funds is the cost estimates, which must be updated by the owners every five years. In December 2016, the latest update of cost estimates was published On the basis of this report, the Swiss Institute of Energy has commissioned the OEko-Institute to carry out a critical evaluation or plausibility check of these cost studies.
