What kind of energy is the hardest to produce?

    That would depend on what you mean by “hardest to produce.” We use different kinds of energy (solar, wind, nuclear, coal, natural gas, etc.) to drive the production of electricity, which is the type of energy that is directly useful to us. All the renewable types of energies are not difficult to produce, as they are naturally available, but it is more a question of how difficult they are to harness. Since solar and wind power technologies are already available, it mostly depends on geography. For nuclear and coal plants, however, materials (uranium, plutonium, or coal) need to be extracted from the earth in order to feed the power plants, which then serve to produce electricity. Based on my understanding, however, I know that nuclear power plants take the longest to construct if you include the whole planning and permitting process.
