-                    ​The calculator lets you choose the share of energy from Nuclear ​power plants ​in the total electricity production capacity ​in Switzerland in the selected year (2035 or 2050).+                ​The calculator lets you choose the installed capacity ​of nuclear ​power plants in Switzerland in the selected year (2035 or 2050). A higher installed capacity results in higher capital costs (due to the construction and installation of the facilities) but does not necessarily imply a greater power production - it may be more profitable to operate other energy conversion facilities (such as windmills or solar plants).

In this case, this increase of the share of nuclear energy in the total electricity production capacity will have the following impacts:
