French Equivalent: Rente naturelle

Hoteling rent is the net return realized from the sale of a natural resource under particular conditions of long—term market equilibrium. It is defined as the revenue received minus all marginal costs of resource exploitation, exploration and development including a normal return to fixed capital employed.

The Hoteling rent is used as a measure of natural resource depletion in environmental accounting.
