I know. We can put huge solar collectors in orbit and they can beam the energy to the planet using microwave or something.

None, because idiots and fools, wish to push centuries old technology down our throats and claim it to be "new". The technology is tested, and the systems work exceptionally well, and efficiently.
Show me links to where anyone has one of those mini-nukes up and running.
Ummmm, you blind, bro? See where I stated NONE. And then the reason?
In other words, nobody anywhere are building these miracle machines.
If you want to have a reliable power system in case wind and solar energy can "disappear", you can't do without traditional sources of energy, and nuclear power is very suitable for this.
