A fresh Finnish warning against nuclear

Finland has provide a lesson for countries considering nuclear: either build a lot or leave them alone. An in-between approach will leave policymakers in an economic no man's land.

The lesson from the latest delay to Finland's planned new nuclear reactor, announced last week, is either build lots of them or don't build any at all.

It is a general economic principle that costs per plant decline the bigger a programme.

Historical data support that for nuclear, where it may apply more acutely given its highly specialised and often unique supply chain and engineering skills.
