The demand for the critical minerals that will power the energy transition is growing exponentially. Lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, and the other critical minerals are essential to deploy the batteries, wind turbines, and solar panels that must increasingly power our vehicles and our grid. We are already seeing lithium prices surge as demand outstrips supply, and the same is expected for cobalt and other minerals by 2025. We must unlock alternative sources to power this energy transition now in order to meet our national and global net-zero goals by 2050.
While the challenges are formidable, the solutions are within reach. Join us as we discuss the future of critical minerals and what companies like Nth Cycle and Lilac Solutions, and corporates like Ford, are doing to build a sustainable and responsible supply chain for the energy transition.
