Fuel, operational, and maintenance costs are relatively small components of the total cost. The long service life and high capacity factor of nuclear power plants allow sufficient funds for ultimate plant decommissioning and waste storage and management to be accumulated, with little impact on the.

Obsolescence and other less obvious ageing-related aspects in nuclear power plant operation are also examined in depth. Part one introduces the reader to the role of nuclear power in the global energy mix, and the importance and relevance of plant life management for the safety regulation and economics of nuclear power plants.

The most important aspects for economic analysis of SMRs are the life-cycle costs and the indicators of economic and financial performance.

Life-Cycle Costs: When it comes to the nuclear sector, the life-cycle costs are usually grouped into four types: Capital costs cover the biggest percentage of life-cycle costs (% [1]). Capital costs.
