The Future of Copper in the Energy Transition
Copper -- the "metal of electrification" -- is essential to the energy transition. But could a looming mismatch between available copper supply and future copper demand present challenges to the achievement of Net Zero Emissions by 2050 goals? S&P Global experts explore these questions and examine the findings of a new study: “The Future of Copper: Will the looming supply gap short-circuit the energy transition?” In a wide-ranging conversation they cover the critical issues at the intersection of metals, mining and the energy economy. Speakers Mohsen Bonakdarpour, Executive Director, Economics and Country Risk, S&P Global John Mothersole, Director of Research, Pricing and Purchasing Service, S&P Global Chair Daniel Yergin, Vice Chairman, S&P Global
