May 2021 Media Brief - Energy in COVID-19

The Energy in COVID-19 monthly media briefs collect the latest news read by our working group members. Each month, different working group members take the lead in writing up summaries and the brief’s framing, always in conversation with the full working group. The overall aim of the briefs is to showcase how disasters instigate policy changes, particularly around economic crises.The May edition of the Energy Rights Project media brief continue discussions from previous media briefs which trace news regarding energy security, utility governance, and energy transitions. This month’s discussion is framed by anthropologists Dana Powell (2018) and Dominic Boyer’s (2019) scholarship and concepts that they advance, such as greening capitalism, transfusions of power, energopower, and energopolitics.
