CESI with WEC on critical raw materials

CESI with WEC on critical raw materials
15 . Jun . 2023

CESI is knowledge partner of WEC Italia (Italian National Committee of the World Energy Council) and Assorisorse (Association of Confindustria of Natural Resources and Sustainable Energy), together with SDA Bocconi School of Management, of the Italian Observatory of Critical Energy Raw Materials – OIMCE. The observatory aims to study the issue of critical raw materials and contribute to the definition of proposals for the sustainable development of the energy sector in Italy with a neutral and science-based approach.

The implementation of the energy transition will require a sharp increase in technologies using critical raw materials, which therefore become essential for the achievement of decarbonization goals, being indispensable components for the creation of, for example, wind turbines, photovoltaic panels and batteries. Their demand will increase exponentially in the coming years; the EU is very committed to securing a minimum quantity of critical raw materials (CRMs) through local sourcing to decrease dependence on high-risk third countries. The Observatory, moreover, will be open to the membership of Italian stakeholders engaged on the topic critical raw materials for energy and aims to collect third and certified information, organize meetings and dialogue with relevant Italian institutions to highlight points of attention identified by industrial, associative, academic and professional actors.

The Observatory will be presented on Friday, June 16, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., with a launch conference at Utilitalia headquarters in Rome. Taking part in the event, for CESI, will be Bruno Cova, Director of Consulting Services and Studies in the Consulting Division. Other guests will include Giordano Colarullo, Paolo D’Ermo, Andrea Ketoff, Matteo Castelnuovo, Marco Ravazzolo, Giuseppe Montesano, Fernanda Panvini, Sara Scagliotti, Alberto Pasanisi, Giacomo Rispoli, Alessio Cipullo, Modestino Colarusso, Ferdinando Fusco and Alberto Prospero. Coordinating the meeting will be Gabriele Masini, Director of Staffetta Quotidiana. The event will also be an opportunity to take stock of the issue and the challenges that Italy will have to face in order to play an active role in the energy transition. Key institutional, academic and corporate stakeholders will participate.
