Quadrature Mineral Availability for Renewables PEMMSS [23204]

Start year: 2024

Summary: Despite the centrality of minerals to the roll-out of renewables and mass-electrification of societies across the globe, publicly available data on the future availability of minerals – such as copper, lithium and nickel – remains patchy and hard to access. With an increasing focus on the responsible sourcing of minerals – plus an evolving geopolitical landscape –having current data and models to explore future scenarios for supply and demand, becomes essential for the foresight required to ensure a fair and fast transition. Communities, policy-makers, industry, financiers and investors all need ready-access to comprehensive data on where current and future minerals will come from, to inform the risk-profile of primary supply and to plan for the energy transition.
