IEA-IGF Webinar | The Role of Critical Minerals in Clean Energy Transitions

IEA-IGF Webinar | The Role of Critical Minerals in Clean Energy Transitions

Event Details

In May 2021, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has issued a report, the Role of Critical Minerals in Clean Energy Transitions, which analyzes the complex links between these minerals, energy security, and the prospects for a sustainable, sequential yet rapid transformation of the energy sector. The report was informed by extensive consultation with partners, including the IGF.

On June 2, 2021 the IEA and IGF co-hosted a webinar to discuss the important issues identified in the IEA’s report, including:

  • Mineral demand implications of a rapid shift to clean energy technologies
  • Far-reaching implications for the metals and mining sector
  • The global shortfall in mineral supply and investment for energy transformation
  • International coordination and due diligence
