The political economy of nuclear power

Wealer, Ben (2020)

This thesis assesses from a political economic point of view the role of nuclear power in a (low-carbon) energy transition in the 21st century. To answer this question a more holistic analysis is needed that considers both the entire nuclear value-added chain (including decommissioning and waste management), political interests, corporate strategies, as well as the underlying institutions. In t...

Scenarios for Coal-Exit in Germany—A Model-Based Analysis and Implications in the European Context

Kittel, Martin ; Göke, Leonard ; Kemfert, Claudia ; Oei, Pao-Yu ; Hirschhausen, Christian von (2020-04-20)

The political discussion to reduce the carbon footprint of Germany’s electricity sector, focusing on coal, is intensifying. In this paper, we develop scenarios for phasing out lignite and hard coal power plants in Germany prior to the end of their technical lifespan (“coal-exit”). Our analysis bases upon two coal-exit instruments, the retirement of coal generation capacities and the limiting of...
