Following my note on DUKES one of the important aspects of the UK energy picture that is illustrated by DUKES 2013 is the growing dependency on imports – the dependency has increased from -20% (i.e. net exports equivalent to 20% of energy supply) in 2000 to +43% (i.e. net imports equivalent to 43% of energy supply) in 2012.  This infographic summarises the supply, production and import statistics for crude oil, gas, coal and electricity.  Net energy import costs in 2012 were £24 billion, 41% of the current account deficit and c.1.5% of GDP.
