Please join Payne Institute Senior Research Associate Sara Hastings-Simon, David Keith, and Ed Whittingham, on the Energy vs. Climate series for a webinar titled Critical Minerals for Clean Technologies: Canada’s Competitive Edge? on Thursday, October 8, 2020 from 12:00pm-1:00pm MT.
The federal government’s Speech from the Throne on Sept. 23 said “Canada has the resources – from nickel to copper – needed for clean technologies. This – combined with Canadian expertise – is Canada’s competitive edge.” Join David, Sara and Ed as they explain exactly what critical minerals such as lithium, copper, and rare earths are, how they relate to clean technologies and energy systems, and whether Canada really has a competitive edge in this area.
