This title is the first of four 'new-look' books in the Power and Energy series that are aimed at industry professionals rather than academics. Nuclear Power explains in detail how nuclear power works, its costs, its benefits as part of the electricity supply system, and also examines its record.

This book covers the debate over the pros and cons of nuclear power. Is it expensive, dangerous and inflexible? Or is nuclear power an opportunity to invest in a long-term, large-scale electricity source that will assist to win the battle against climate change? There will be broad market interest in this book, which has been written for general awareness.

Other subjects that will be included in this new range are co-generation, embedded generation, and condition assessment of high voltage insulation in power system equipment.
