Dominique Finon and Fabien Roques
The paper studies how risks specific to a nuclear power investment in
liberalised markets regulatory, construction, operation and market
risks can be mitigated or transferred away from the plant investor
through different contractual and organisational arrangements. It argues
that significant risk transfers onto governments, consumers, and,
vendors are likely to be needed to make nuclear power attractive to
investors in liberalised markets, at least for the first batch of new
reactors. These different types of risk allocations will in turn induce
different investment financing choices. Four case studies of recent new
nuclear projects illustrate the consistent combinations of contractual,
organisational, and financial arrangements for new nuclear build
