Energy self-sufficiency rate


Dernière mise à jour le :13/10/2016


The energy self-sufficiency rate is the ratio between national primary energy output (coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear, hydraulic and renewable energies) and consumption

of primary energy in a given year. This rate may be calculated for each of the broad energy types or overall for all types of energy. A rate of over 100% (as is the case for electricity) indicates a national production surplus in relation to domestic demand and therefore net exports.
