This is a talk I gave at the Detroit Edison Company on April 17, 2007. It's the most complete version summarizing our work on the historical costs of nuclear power. That worked appeared in three refereed journal articles:
Hultman, Nathan E., and Jonathan G. Koomey. 2007. "The risk of surprise in energy technology costs." Environmental Research Letters. vol. 2, no. 034002. July. <http: />

Koomey, Jonathan G., and Nathan E. Hultman. 2007. "A reactor-level analysis of busbar costs for U.S. nuclear plants, 1970-2005." Energy Policy. vol. 35, no. 11. November. pp. 5630-5642. <http: />
The last article is the primary source--the other two derive policy insights from the data developed in that last article.
