The event will bring energy metal companies and institutional investors together to discuss, network and create business relationships.

There was US$76.7 billion invested in renewable energy in the June quarter of 2018 alone and renewables make up around 17% of power consumption globally and this is growing.

Energy transition

Solar, storage, wind and electric vehicles are at the forefront of the transition to low carbon power generation and are reliant on a few metals - lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, copper and rare earths.

With a supply chain scattered across the globe and pockets in politically unstable countries, some industry insiders forecast shortages in key metals needed to fulfil legally binding commitments made by 170 countries to reduce emissions.

Cobalt Blue intends to play its part in a cleaner energy future with its vertically integrated supply strategy focused on the Thackaringa Cobalt Project near the mining centre of Broken Hill.

Kaderavek will outline the pure-play cobalt focused company’s strategy during his presentation at Renewable Metals Connect.

While efforts are focused on advancing the project, should it be appropriate, other yet to be identified prospects may expand the overall cobalt asset portfolio.

The company is also seeking to invest in energy storage technologies that may complement the production of cobalt in commercialising battery and associated energy storage technologies.

Of particular interest is the life cycle of rechargeable batteries from ‘cradle’ to ‘grave’ and how such technologies can be used to grow the green energy industry in Australia and around the world.

Cobalt Blue holds a 70% interest in a joint venture with Broken Hill Prospecting Limited (ASX:BPL) (30%) to develop the Thackaringa Cobalt Project.
