A joint study by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and the International Energy Agency (IEA) concluded that the costs of nuclear energy "remain in line" with those of other baseload technologies. The report, 'Projected Costs of Generating Electricity', estimates the average levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) for a NPP to be comparable to a coal plant and lower than a natural gas-fired power station. LCOE is the long-term price at which the electricity produced by a nuclear station will have to be sold for the investor to cover all costs.
