    Use of renewable natural resources, combined with efficient supply and use of fossil fuels with cleaner technologies, can help reduce the environmental effects of energy use and help Nigeria replacing the existing, inefficient fossil fuel technologies that pollute the environment. Electrical energy is stored during times when production especially from intermittent sources such as wind powertidal powersolar power exceeds consumption, and returned to the grid when production falls below consumption. In particular, there are more rural poor than urban poor. Although democratic systems offer the best chance for successful LED, the power of self-government derived through democratic means does not guarantee success. Hence the additional costs of the incentives for early deployment should be considered learning investments; they must be wisely spent and need to be widely shared". Ethanol fuel is also widely available in the United States.

    As observed in quite a number of successful countries promoting renewable energy, such as Germany, Denmark, and Japan, a strong and long-term commitment from the government is crucial in implementing any kind of policies which will lead to the development of renewable energies, in particular, and a sustainable development, in general. Energy supply and use are related to climate change as well as such environmental concerns as air pollution, ozone depletion, forest destruction, and emissions of radioactive substances. Through effective nurturing and mobilization, youth and children constitute a potent force. Energy is central to the economy because it drives all economic activities. These concepts seem intuitively to be more sustainable than the current linear economic system.

    Import into RefWorks 1. Encourage local business enterprise development. Resilience[ edit ] Resilience in ecology is the capacity of an ecosystem to absorb disturbance and still retain its basic structure and viability. Furthermore, energy use affects the environment. Ideally, a society seeking sustainable development should use only energy resources which have no environmental impact. These areas may be the most affected by the predictable effects of climate change such as an increased frequency of extreme events, for example floods, drought, rising sea levels, and melting ice caps.
