There may be a different solution for different areas.

Nearly half the world's population lives near coastal areas, and most of the world’s megacities are located in the coastal zones.

I think the answer to future energy production is in the oceans and tides of the world.
Yeah get the nimbly people to agree to that.
I remember a few years back they blocked the largest US off shore wind farm off the cost of MA some where.
Because it would "ruin the view". And that the wind turbines should be "put out in the country where no one would see them", which is exactly the grid lock experienced in other parts of the world.

Nuclear power plants do great next to the ocean as long as it's not the ring of fire and in a massive earthquake and tsunami zone.
