The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Energy Resources are pleased to invite you to a virtual workshop to discuss global mineral needs as the energy transition ramps up. The workshop will be held on:

Date: Tuesday, 2nd June 2020

Time: 10:30 ET / 16:30 CEST

Format: virtual workshop

As we consider the future energy landscape, we must also consider the present situation. The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated peoples’ lives and disrupted economies. While the first response must focus on saving lives and providing immediate support for livelihoods, there are important implications for long term economic stability and supply chain security. As we restart our economies, we must remain cognizant of the incredible raw material and supply chain demands of the energy transition and start thinking through how to ensure long term resilience.

Join us for this two-and-a-half-hour workshop to discuss the increasing demand of energy minerals and metals.
