Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

Nuclear power generation is a capital-intensive process and the efficiency with which capital is employed has a major influence on the cost of generation. The key aspects of capital efficiency are the minimization of spare capacity and the maximization of plant availability. Generating plants have a long economic life (usually more than 30 years) and a several year lead times are required for the installation of new plants. New generating plants also tend to come on stream in large units, which may produce a capacity overhang that takes years to absorb. In 2014, for every dollar spent on labor, industry operators are expected to spend $0.48 on capital investments.
