Session III: Guidelines for Modelling the Nuclear Power Sector (Chair: G. Rothwell)

Discussion with of the issue of the appropriate Input-Output modelling of the nuclear power sector

Discussion of the issue of direct, indirect, and induced employment in the nuclear power

  1. How should direct, indirect, and induced employment in the sector be calculated?
  2. How can gross effects be distinguished from net effects? (What baseline?)
  3. How can generic multipliers be used to determine employment effects?
  4. How would multipliers change with technological change?
  5. What modifications are required for application to other generating sectors?

Session IV: Guidelines for Modelling the Nuclear Power Employment (Chair: V. Alexeeva-Talebi)

Discussion of future activities
