  3. 3. ENERGY CRISIS <ul><li>Introduction: </li></ul><ul><li>Since the Industrial Revolution, which commenced in the 18 th century, demand for energy has continued to grow. </li></ul><ul><li>In meeting the demand for energy, fossil type energy carriers and in particular oil and gas have contributed the largest share, over the years. Fossil type resources are known to have been formed over hundreds of million years ago and are therefore finite in quantity. </li></ul><ul><li>An energy crisis is any great bottleneck (or price rise) in the supply of energy resources to an economy. </li></ul><ul><li>energy crisis may be referred to as an </li></ul><ul><li>oil crisis </li></ul><ul><li>petroleum crisis </li></ul><ul><li>energy shortage </li></ul><ul><li>electricity shortage </li></ul><ul><li>electricity crisis. </li></ul>
