The mining and energy sectors are increasingly interlinked. There will be no global energy transition without mining. Mining will need to both create and be supported by new and complex energy ecosystems. From copper to battery metals, green steel to platinum group metals, mining produces the critical minerals required for great electrification and the energy transition. Mines are also some of the largest independent power producers as they both decarbonize and move off grid. But navigating towards a decarbonised post-COP27 world is fraught with complexity as miners develop and deploy new technologies, adapt to changing value chains, and seek the skills required for the journey.
