    It’s probably best to split the factors into technical, political, and commercial.

    Technical:
    Lots and lots of water readily available? ie the sea or a river.
    Flat land?
    Non-earthquake zone?

    Political:
    Away from population centres?
    Away from sensitive natural habitats?
    The need to build at any cost to increase the country’s “installed capacity” cos we have a massive “Energy Gap”?

    Commercial:
    Can you get someone else to pay for it cos it makes absolutely no sense if you have to pay for it yourself?
