The International Energy Agency released a report in 2021, outlining the critical role minerals will play in the energy transition. The report highlighted the startling mismatch between the world’s climate ambitions and the availability of critical metals & minerals needed to realise a clean energy economy.  So how will we resource the energy transition? And, will mining ultimately decarbonize the world?
