    Nuclear.  Well-maintained nuclear reactors operate at around 95-98% efficiency.  Next is hydroelectricity which can reach 90% in some cases.  In terms of square feet, nuclear reactors don’t require giant reservoirs. 

    Wind turbines average around 35%, about the same as coal combustion.  Solar tops out under 30%.
