Digging Up Energy: How Long Will the Green Mining Boom Last?

Wednesday, 26 May

1:40 pm - 2:00 pm (EST) / 26/may/2021 05:40 pm - 26/may/2021 06:00 pm

Prices for "green" metals such as lithium, cobalt, and bellwether copper are booming because decarbonizing the energy mix means building wind, solar, and battery-based energy systems that rely on these metals. New tech is "moving the needle," according to IHS Markit mining and minerals experts, as the energy transition changes the global mined commodities mix and incentivizes mine construction and expansion, often in remote or geopolitically tricky areas. Mining is a mainstay source of breakbulk cargo volumes. This session will analyze the minerals and regions where growth is expected, and how long the "energy minerals" boom is likely to last.
