Insufficient diversification of urban and industrial energy supply

Other Names:
Over-reliance on single energy sources

No single energy source can continue to meet all energy needs over a long period, nor are there new sources capable of taking over fully from those which now exist. In addition, increased reliance on certain types of energy resources (for example, coal and nuclear energy) result in environmental problems.
