Moltex Energy Publishes Cost of Electricity
In an interview with Nuclear Energy Insider Moltex reveals its overnight capital cost of under $2/W based on an independent cost estimate by a leading UK engineering firm. Further reductions to this overnight cost are expected for modularised construction. For comparison, the capital cost of a modern pulverised coal power station in the U.S. is $3.25/W and the cost of Hinkley Point C is $7.46/W.
