My latest thought (certainly not just mine) has been to produce a
synthetic fuel that is hydrocarbon compatible (methyl ester - biodiesel
- miscible alcohol) that can be piped/trucked with oil or as an
alternative, from solar or electrical power.

How do you transmit and store 1GW of power? With a liquid fuel,
probably. Thermal solutions are nice but they "leak" and are only
practical for storage awaiting the electrical grid. Water pumping is out
of the question if you're in the desert, the grid can't store energy
(yet)...
