Abstract [en]

Efficient power plant licensing procedures are essential for the   functioning of deregulated electricity markets. The purpose of this   paper is to review and analyse the licensing process for nuclear power   plants in Sweden, and in part contrast the Swedish case with the   corresponding approaches in a selection of other countries. This   approach permits a discussion of how licensing processes can be altered   and what the benefits and drawbacks of such changes are. The paper   highlights and discusses a number of important legal issues and   implications, including, for instance: (a) the role of political versus   impartial decision-making bodies; (b) the tension between national   policy goals and implementation at the local level; (c) public   participation and access to justice; (d) consistency and clarity of the   legal system: and (e) the introduction of license time limits.
