Title: Nuclear Power Markal 3.24 AGR/PWR/Magnox 2000 cost data point Content: h2 Items that this cost includes In particular, please explain how the following costs have been treated: # Uranium extraction and processing # Uranium storage # Uranium disposal # Connection costs to national grid Uranium costs are separated. Not clear about grid costs. h2 Items that this cost excludes h2 Detail on the conditions under which this cost is valid Existing UK AGR/PWR/Magnox reactors. h2 Explanations as to why this cost differs from others h2 Limitations of this cost estimate h2 Calculations h3 Operating cost The fixed operating cost is given as £34/kW and the variable as £0.05/GJ. The availability factor is given as 82%. Therefore the variable component of the operating cost is 365.25 days x 24 hours x 82% availability x 0.0036 kWh/GJ x £0.05/GJ = £1.29/kW.
