A U.S. Mineral Strategy for Global Energy Transition
A secure, reliable supply chain for critical minerals is essential for energy transitions globally and in the United States. This event will highlight ways the United States can further enhance supply chains for the minerals fueling the energy transition and better characterize risks of supply disruption.
Under Secretary of State Jose W. Fernandez, who leads U.S. international partnerships to advance the mineral security, will provide a keynote address, followed by a brief Q&A moderated by Joseph Majkut (CSIS Energy Security & Climate Change Program).
Frank Fannon (CSIS and Fannon Global Advisors), Cullen Hendrix (PIIE) and Abigail Wulf (SAFE) will then join Joseph Majkut to discuss challenges in supply disruption risk-assessment, the role of commodity markets, and existing U.S. efforts to secure critical minerals.
This event is made possible by support from ClearPath.
Challenges abound in the global race to secure minerals for the energy transition, but some opportunities are ripe for politically durable and economically sound policy prescriptions for U.S. leadership in growing and diversifying the global supply chains.
