The effect of discount rate on the yearly payment of Paks Nuclear Power Plant into the central nuclear financial fundCompetition and Regulation 2019 - books, chaptersPublished: 26 of March, 2020

Decommissioning of nuclear power plants are very costly. In most of the countries using nuclear capacities for electricity production, the dismantling of nuclear waste is financed by a nuclear fund. Due to the fact that the decommissioning and the safety nuclear waste disposal costs are incurred after the closure of nuclear plants, the discount rate is a crucial factor. First, we show various theoretical methods of determining the discount rate and also the applied methods using in the European countries are demonstrated. In our analyses we use different approaches on discount rate and calculate the effect of this factor to the yearly payment of Paks Nuclear Power Plant into the Central Nuclear Financial Fund.
