This report documents the outputs of the INPRO collaborative project "Comparative Evaluation of Nuclear Energy System Options" (CENESO). The overall objectives of CENESO were to apply the approach to comparative evaluation of system/scenario options developed in the previous INPRO collaborative project and published in IAEA Nuclear Energy Series NG-T-3.20. The current publication presents new case studies and elaborates upon previous ones to extend the Key Indicators for Innovative Nuclear Energy Systems (KIND) approach to develop additional modules for enhancing the resolution among compared alternatives. The supplementary online files provide the latest version of the KIND Excel Tool (KIND-ET) and its extensions complete with user instructions.
