Carbon Brief

Explainer: These six metals are key to a low-carbon future🕊

SNIPPET:

The deployment of renewables and electric vehicles is expected to skyrocket as the world strives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

These low-carbon technologies currently rely on a handful of key metals, some of which have been little-used to date. This raises questions over whether enough of these materials can be mined to ensure a large-scale rollout. Others are concerned that bottlenecks could appear, as metal output rises to meet demand, or that the environmental impacts of mining could undermine carbon savings elsewhere.

Carbon Brief takes a look at some of the metals attracting most attention and examines where they come from, the quantities available and whether they could pose risks to meeting the climate targets of the Paris Agreement.

Which metals are needed for low-carbon technology?

How much of these metals will be needed?

Where do metals for low-carbon tech come from?
 
Do price rises mean the world is running short of key metals?

Could shortages hold up decarbonisation?

What problems are caused by extraction?
