NERA sister company Marsh held a seminar in Palm Beach, Florida on 22 September 2010 to examine the latest trends and developments in risk management in the nuclear energy sector. NERA Vice President Edward Kee delivered a presentation, "DOE Nuclear Power Plant Loan Guarantees: Evaluating Regulatory & Market Risk." Mr. Kee discussed a range of issues, including the status of First and Second Wave nuclear projects in the US; the difference between new regulated or merchant nuclear plants; the link between today's regulatory risk and the experience with cost overruns, plant cancellations, and disallowances for the prior generation of nuclear power plants; and the main drivers of market risk for new merchant nuclear power plants.
