    • Energy security of a country can be measured using 'Energy Security Index'
      • Availability- the amount of a country's domestic oil  and gad supplies and its level of reliance on imported resources
      • Diversity- the range of energy resources used
      • Intensity- the degree to which the economy of a country is dependent on oil and gas
      • The higher the index, the lower the risk - greater the energy security
