Their names may call to mind grade-school studies of the periodic table – copper, nickel, lithium, manganese, cobalt – but these and other minerals are fast-becoming hot commodities amid the global clean energy transition.
Some are key components of the batteries needed for electric vehicles (EVs) and energy storage. Others are critical in developing permanent magnets for wind turbines, solar panels, and EV motors. Still others fuel the electricity and technologies that will transform our grid infrastructure.
Download our global mining update to learn more about the challenges and best practices in the race for critical minerals that will power the energy transition.
