Burke Auditorium, Kroon Hall (195 Prospect Street) See map
Event description: 
Join us from 5 - 8pm at Kroon Hall on February 22nd for an interdisciplinary event focused on the critical materials required for the energy transition. There will be expert keynotes, a dynamic panel discussion, and dinner. Solar panels, wind turbines, EV batteries and energy storage all require critical minerals such as lithium, cobalt and rare earth elements. Mineral production has social and environmental challenges, domestically and globally. We will explore these issues along with geopolitics, trade and recycling opportunities of critical materials and the energy transition.
