Tuesday, 2nd June 2020, 10:30 ET / 16:30 CEST
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.
This two-and-a-half-hour workshop discussed the increasing demand of energy minerals and metals.
