I'll commit the same error as others who say perhaps RE storage will be viable in the future by saying that perhaps in 100 years we won't be storing nuclear "waste", but using it to fuel new generation reactors.
Look at Texas up through the Dakotas. South Dakota alone could generate about 1/3rd of all the electricity need in the entire lower 48 states.

Off shore wind is huge in some areas. Add wind together with solar, and biomass and wave, tidal, geothermal, and storage - and we are finding that we can get more than enough energy.
