Reports like these are needed by the general public. We desperately need one in the UK considering the huge cost of nuclear decommissioning.

If energy costs such as those considered in the report are passed onto the consumer, then the power companies had better watch out, people will get hacked off and find a way of self generation or community generation to get off the grid. Then the nuclear companies will be left saddled with a huge resource that they cannot sell. Then what happens, the companies go bust and the tax payers pay for decomissioning anyway.

Its a lose lose situation for the consumer.
