If you count energy that comes in the form of oil or gas, then yes, definitely. In 2007, the U.S. imported a total of 3,656,170 thousand barrels from 46 different countries.
The number in the other answer reflects crude oil imports only. The US also imports several million barrels per day of refined products (mostly gasoline), so that in recent years the total imports for a year ranges from 4.3 billion barrels to a bit over 5 billion barrels. (The decline in 2009 reflects lower demand due to the recession.)
To address the original question, the US also imports about 12% of its natural gas and a tiny amount of electricity, less than 1% of consumption. Most of both come from Canada.
