Use a giant carbon fiber flywheel on magnetc bearings inside a containment vessel that you can pull a vacume on so you reduce the friction.

Carbon fiber flywheels can spin at 100,000 rpms and store a ton of energy combine them with solar or wind even out power supply with no emmisions .World's energy problen solved, you can thank me later I prefer cash over fame but a statue would be nice too.
