The bill for a rapid phasing out of nuclear power may be even higher than Waterfalls previously warned, writes Dagens Industri.
- Even if the remaining six reactors closed in 2020 instead of going all over their estimated useful life, as it leads to additional costs to society of at least 200 billion, says Karin Byman, energy expert at the Academy of Engineering Sciences IVA to the newspaper.
According to Vattenfall's own calculation would cost to land at most 200 billion.
IVA also believes the cost of increased carbon dioxide emissions would increase by around SEK 500 million, as during a transitional period may need to replace nuclear power with imported fossil fuels from Poland and Germany.
IVA's calculation has been made together with Runar Brännlund, professor of economics, to give political parties a basis for decisions.
