Energy Transition in the Context of Electricity Power System and Climate Change Reality : A Macro Evidence from Ghana
| ABSTRACT Whereas energy transitions have received global energy governance attention over the few decades, it appears research on this important subject is either new or unclear in terms of the
Recent pegmatite-hosted spodumene discoveries in Western Australia: insights for lithium exploration in Australia and globally
ABSTRACT The discovery and development of world-class Lithium–Caesium–Tantalum (LCT) spodumene-bearing pegmatites in Western Australia underpins growth of a significant new sector of its mining
Low-cost solutions to global warming, air pollution, and energy insecurity for 145 countries
Timeline to transition 145 countries to 100% wind-water-solar by 2035, with 80% by 2030.


The rise of renewables and energy transition: what adaptation strategy for oil companies and oil-exporting countries?
The energy landscape is changing rapidly with far-reaching implications for the global energy industry and actors, including oil companies and oil-exporting countries. These rapid changes introduce
Decreasing Ore Grades in Global Metallic Mining: A Theoretical Issue or a Global Reality?
Mining industry requires high amounts of energy to extract and process resources, including a variety of concentration and refining processes. Using energy consumption information, different
Framework for resilience in material supply chains, with a case study from the 2010 Rare Earth Crisis.
It is shown that supply chain resilience is composed of various mechanisms, including (a) resistance, (b) rapidity, and (c) flexibility, that originate from different parts of the supply chain.
Black Gold and Blackmail
This book seeks to explain why great powers adopt such different strategies to protect their oil access from politically motivated disruptions. In extreme cases, such as Imperial Japan in 1941, great
Material and Energy Requirement for Rare Earth Production
The use of rare earth metals (REMs) for new applications in renewable and communication technologies has increased concern about future supply as well as environmental burdens associated with the
The Growing Role of Minerals and Metals for a Low Carbon Future
Climate and greenhouse gas (GHG) scenarios have typically paid scant attention to the metal implications necessary to realize a low/zero carbon future. The 2015 Paris Agreement on Climate Change
