Fees are paid in by the nuclear power companies and other fee-liable licensees. The fees are calculated in relation to the nuclear-generated energy delivered or as an amount in kronor, e.g. for a fee-liable licensee who no longer delivers nuclear energy. The Government decides annually how big the fees should be, based on a proposal from the National Debt Office.
The primary task of the Nuclear Waste Fund is to manage the capital so as to provide a good return on the paid-in money.
The Nuclear Waste Fund also handles disbursements from the Fund. The National Debt Office, and in some cases the Government, considers and decides how Fund assets may be used.
