November 2021 Media Brief

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.

Summary

The November 2021 edition of the Energy Right Project’s media brief covers three themes: Energy Transitions, Energy Expenses, and Energy Insecurities. Under the first theme, our artifacts cover articles ranging from positive actions taken towards more production of clean energy to tariff wars brewing in the green energy sector, as well as infrastructural policies favoring the use of electric vehicles. Artifacts presented under our second theme consider the ways in which energy markets can create new expenses for both utilities and consumers, be it in the form of energy production and distribution, or simply in the concurrent price hikes following the end of pandemic moratoria. Under our final theme, artifacts document how energy regimes can perpetuate vulnerabilities in households and also create supply insecurities that threaten consumer health.
