August 2020 Media Brief

The monthly Energy in COVID-19 research brief collects the latest news read by our working group members. The overall aim of the briefs is to showcase how disasters can shore up policy changes, particularly around economic crises.


Reports continue to range in coverage and topic, as the pandemic’s impacts continue to unfold and continue to be felt, already stressed systems’ vulnerabilities are increasingly brought to light. For this week’s brief, reports and news articles focus on varied topics that do, however, continue to take into consideration the economic repercussions of the pandemic. Topics of discussion range from further highlighting the economic stress placed on many families, the distress faced at the onset of both wildfires and tropical storms, as well as ongoing 'green energy' projects.
