But while Germany may have flipped its perspective on the nuclear renaissance, nations like China, France, Argentina, Bangladesh and even oil-rich Saudi Arabia are staying the course.Representatives from AREVA and Électricité de France (EDF) (EPA:EDF), along with French Industry Minister Arnaud Montebourg, are in Saudi Arabia this week to discuss the sale of nuclear reactors with government officials. The talks follow a 2011 nuclear agreement between the two countries. The Middle Eastern nation has no nuclear power program currently, but is pondering constructing a facility with a capacity of 17 gigawatts by 2032, reported Reuters. The AREVA-EDF alliance may face competition from Westinghouse-Toshiba and a South Korean consortium.
