The energy use per $1000 of GDP for Thailand includes all types of energy, including imported and domestically produced. The measure tells us how energy intensive the economy is. Countries with more energy efficient production will have a lower energy use per $1000 GDP.
Definition: Energy use per PPP GDP is the kilogram of oil equivalent of energy use per constant PPP GDP. 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. PPP GDP is gross domestic product converted to 2011 constant international dollars using purchasing power parity rates. An international dollar has the same purchasing power over GDP as a U.S. dollar has in the United States.
