Actually there are.Well theres the elephant in the room, there is no such tech on the horizon
You could use energy from wind and solar to create hydrogen. You could then use that hydrogen in gas power stations or vehicles (once the tech has matured a bit)
Any waste is largely recyclable and where it isn't the rubbish is not going to cost billions of pounds to essentially kick it down the street for the next generations to deal with.
It's a step in the right direction and it is not being done quick enough.
Sure, we probably need the odd nuclear station on standby (not that the reaction can really be on standby) but again, when wind and solar are kicking out excess power the nuclear stations can power hydrogen production.
