Contesting the Future of Nuclear Power: A Critical Global Assessment of Atomic Energy is a 2011 book by Benjamin K. Sovacool, published by World Scientific. The nuclear power industry is preparing for a nuclear renaissance, but this book states "that a global nuclear renaissance would bring immense technical, economic, environmental, political, and social costs". Sovacool says that it is renewable energy technologies which will enhance energy security, and which have many other advantages.
The book says the marginal levelized cost for "a 1,000-MWe facility built in 2009 would be 41.2 to 80.3 cents/kWh, presuming one actually takes into account construction, operation and fuel, reprocessing, waste storage, and decommissioning."
