International Index of Energy Security Risk: 2016 Edition
June 7, 2016
This fourth edition of the International Index of Energy Security Risk (International Index) provides an updated look at energy security risks across different countries for the years 1980 through 2014. The risk index scores calculated for the United States and 24 other countries that make up the Index’s large energy user group: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom. The scores for these countries are reported in relation to an average reference index measuring risks for the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) member countries. The OECD average risk index is calibrated to a 1980 base year figure of 1,000.
