A downward trend of the TMR, together with the usual upward trend of economic output (GDP), would thus indicate a decoupling of environmental pressure from economic growth. This can be seen as a process of dematerialization of the economy, and hence of ecological sustainability, as defined previously.

It depends on the definition and system boundary. input–output (I–O) analysis A subdiscipline of economics that explicitly determines indirect effects. net energy analysis A comparison of the energy costs and the energy produced by an energy technology such as a coal mine or photovoltaic panel. power Energy per unit time (units ¼ energy/time). system boundary The limit up to which costs, benefits, impacts, and consequences are considered; can refer to spatial, temporal, or conceptual issues. trophic position (TP) An indicator of dependence of an organism or group of organisms on solar-driven photosynthesis in an ecosystem.

For example, auto fuel is usually considered direct energy, whereas energy to build roads is considered indirect.
