Nuclear energy has proven to be a perfect candidate for limitless amounts of energy, only problem is that the after-effects are kind of unwanted by everyone on the planet, and if we look at the safety, well, it's not 100% safe (Chernobyl).

Nuclear is probably the best option tbh, actually 'thorium based molten salt reactors' show a lot of promise.  Start with some uranium and you can feed the system with thorium (wildly abundant) to keep it going.  Could operate at higher temperatures than current nuclear plants at much lower, and safer pressures.
