Maybe China should build them instead
Meanwhile China has one EPR unit (Taishan 1) already online and connected to the grid, with another one (Taishan 2) being connected to the grid next year: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EPR_%28nuclear_reactor%29
Clearly it's not that EPRs are hard to build, or necessarily expensive. Is the West incapable of large-scale building projects at this point? I'd even include the utter failure that is the new Berlin airport, or what should have become an airport.
The skeptical view here is that maybe we should just give up at this point and let China build all new infrastructure.
