Abstract


The authors regret that on page 324, subsection 2.1.3 of the publication
a presented statistic was used inaccurately and improperly cited. The statistics
attributed to global nuclear safety incidents should more accurately be applied
to all low-carbon energy systems collectively over the time period. The correct
statistics attributed to nuclear safety incidents only are reported to be 172
incidents, USD 241 billion in property damage and 4803 deaths. These statistics
should also be properly attributed to Sovacool et al., Balancing safety with
sustainability: assessing the risk of accidents for modern low-carbon energy
systems. Journal of Cleaner Production
2016;112:3952-3965. These errors do not affect the main results or conclusions
of the publication in any way. The authors would like to apologise for any
inconvenience caused.
