Please join the International Energy Forum (IEF) and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Dr. Morgan Bazilian presenting Global Critical Minerals Supply & Transition Requirements at the IEF – FMF Critical Minerals Outlooks Symposium on Tuesday, August 15, 2023.
The projected shortage of critical minerals required to accelerate the energy transition is an urgent priority for the global community and is expected to be a constraint to achieving shared climate goals.
More critical minerals supply is needed to enable the desired growth in electrification and the deployment of other clean energy technologies such as low-carbon hydrogen. However, the mining and metals sectors face significant constraints, including social, environmental and financial factors.
There is a need for decision makers in the energy and minerals sectors to enhance their understanding of the outlooks for demand and supply of energy and minerals, with a view to strengthening the prospects of timely, just and orderly transitions to net zero carbon emissions.
This symposium, co-hosted by the International Energy Forum and the Future Minerals Forum, will present and compare recent outlooks for critical minerals supply and processing capabilities by leading international organizations and industry sources.
It will provide an opportunity for decision makers and experts to exchange points of view on the determinants of the outlooks as well as the challenges and opportunities to advance the energy transition, energy security, and market stability.
The symposium will be conducted on Zoom to an invited audience and livestreamed to the public on IEF and FMF digital channels.
