I. Key Parameter Sensitivities

All entries are in US cents per kilowatt-hour.

Note that the levelized cost of electricity is quite insensitive to the price of uranium in these pricing ranges.

II. Baseline Data

Baseline data used in the models are presented below. The nominal numbers you see were provided courtesy of the Nuclear Engineering Division at the Energy Department's Argonne National Laboratory. Slightly older data are available by clicking on the 'Datasets' button on the upper left side of the page. Values can be edited in the tables below to calculate new costs that can be downloaded for later reference.
