Why India's electricity is likely to remain in short supply: The economics of nuclear power

M. V. Ramana
2013 Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists  
IndiaÕs government has extremely lofty ambitions for future nuclear energy generation, but the author argues that the poor economics of such generation, among other reasons, will not allow those to be realized. The nuclear establishmentÕs calculations are flawed, and any expansion is likely to lead to a price hike in a country where so many people already cannot afford electricity. The author writes that the governmentÕs inordinate focus on nuclear energy is therefore misguided.
