We show the energy imports for Nicaragua and other countries. The measure equals the total energy used in the country minus its production of energy. A negative sign means that the country uses less energy than it produces, i.e. it is a net exporter of energy. A positive sign means that it is a net importer. The numbers are percent of the energy used.
Definition: Net energy imports are estimated as energy use less production, both measured in oil equivalents. A negative value indicates that the country is a net exporter. Energy use refers to use of primary energy before transformation to other end-use fuels, which is equal to indigenous production plus imports and stock changes, minus exports and fuels supplied to ships and aircraft engaged in international transport.
