Glossary:Energy dependency rate

The energy dependency rate shows the proportion of energy that an economy must import. It is defined as net energy imports divided by gross available energy, expressed as a percentage. A negative dependency rate indicates a net exporter of energy while a dependency rate in excess of 100 % indicates that energy products have been stocked. It can be defined for all products total as well as for individual fuels (for example: crude oil, natural gas).
