ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the application of data from power plant construction in preparing cost estimates for decommissioning power plants. It mentions that there are similarities between the construction and decommissioning of nuclear power plants. Factors that need to be considered in decommissioning include real price and quantity changes for cost estimation, economies of scale forecasts and development of appropriate management practices. It suggests the provision of incentives as a solution to the problem of inequities of decommissioning schedule.
