1. NAME AND TITLE
EEDB: The Energy Economic Data Base.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
No program included. (P00531MNYCP00).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
The Energy Economics Data Base (EEDB) was developed by United Engineers & Constructors (now Washington Group International, Inc.) to provide representative, consistent electric power generating station technical and cost information to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The database was first assembled in 1978 and was updated regularly for DOE from 1978 through 1990. Since 1991, Washington has maintained the data base on a private basis, as DOE discontinued funding at that time. The Data Base with its updates provides the only uniformly consistent historical record of U.S. Nuclear Power Plant costs in existence for use in analyzing cost trends, identifying future possibilities, and establishing a benchmark against which alternatives may be evaluated. This package contains nine documents cited below, which are related to EEDB.
