A composite indicator showing import vulnerability comparison between coal, crude oil and natural gas consists of six indicators including source share in total primary energy supply, self-sufficiency, import dependency diversification of import source by region, dependency on country ranked more than five based on OECD country risk [6], and chokepoint diversification. Thailand’s Security of Energy Supply: Import Dependency Vulnerability Assessment 59 The value of SWI used to measure diversity scale ranges from near 0 (low richness and evenness).
