Research work

A 2008 meta analysis by Benjamin K. Sovacool determined that the mean value of CO2 emissions for nuclear power over the lifecycle of a plant was 66.08 g/kWh. Comparative results for wind power, hydroelectricity, solar thermal power, and solar photovoltaic were 9-10 g/kWh, 10-13 g/kWh, 13 g/kWh and 32 g/kWh respectively.[2]

Sovacool's research interests include energy policy, environmental issues, and science and technology policy.[1] He has published more than 90 academic papers and is a regular contributor to The Electricity Journal and Energy Policy. He has also appeared on the BBC World News, Bloomberg Live!, and Channel News Asia and been interviewed by Newsweek International, Associated Press, United Press International.[1][3] His work on carbon emissions from nuclear power stations has also been reviewed in Nature.[4]
