We explore the relatively new, and profoundly dangerous, phenomenon of energy colonialism. This sees actors in wealthy countries, from private companies to state-backed enterprises, investing in the power infrastructure of the Global South, moves which can often bring employment and infrastructure to the less wealthy countries, but do so at the cost of independent action and freedom of their own energy industries. Can these pros and cons ever ethically be balanced, or is this just the latest chapter in a centuries-old story of a wealthy elite looking to dominate the world?
