Externalities included (more-or-less), nuclear is easily the cheapest dense
energy source available to us today. Virtually all other energy sources are
more expensive per kWh, even without taking externalities into account.

The only power source that could trump nuclear price-wise is geothermal (in
countries that have good geothermal possibilities), but there are some
logistical and inertial difficulties involved with that.
