Analyzing the Socioeconomic Impacts of Nuclear Power Plant Closure Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Closures of nuclear power plants can have devastating impacts for hosting communities. Our project investigated the socioeconomic impacts that occur following the closure of a nuclear power plant. The goal of this project was to help communities and utility companies improve planning by identifying potential socioeconomic impacts caused by their closure and exploring mitigation opportunities. We compiled information that explained the socioeconomic impacts and mitigation practices from four closed nuclear power plants. Currently, there is not a central location containing information regarding socioeconomic impacts and mitigation practices. Our team made the initial effort to fill this gap by creating an interactive matrix to centralize this information.
