    more than what?  do you mean increase the amount from what it is now ?

    All of the energy from the Sun that reaches the Earth arrives as solar radiation, part of a large collection of energy called the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. Solar radiation includes visible light, ultraviolet light, infrared, radio waves, X-rays, and gamma rays.

    Some of that energy is reflected off the surface or off the atmosphere.

    You could increase the amount of energy by reducing that reflected amount. Adding CO₂ to the atmosphere will do that, for one method, and in fact, is now doing that, reference "global warming".

    IF you mean electrical energy, build more solar arrays.

    Giant vaccuum cleaners sucking in energy from the beyond.

    I'm talking the sizes of stadiums.

    Build a shell completely around it, with the interior of that shell covered in solar panels.
