“2022 was a global wake-up call regarding the importance of energy transition and security,” said John Ciampaglia, CEO of Sprott Asset Management. “Certain critical minerals serve as raw materials that are required to meet the growing need for low-carbon energy, increased electrification and the transition to electric vehicles.”
Ciampaglia added: “Due to years of underinvestment, demand for many energy transition materials now outstrips supply. We believe mining companies focused on energy transition minerals are well positioned to benefit from the significant investments that will be required over the coming decades.”
