About this channel

The shift to low-carbon energy sources is well underway, albeit at varying speeds around the world. Energy markets tend to get much of the focus, but metals will naturally play a big role in this shift, from the manufacturing of EVs, wind turbines, and solar cells all the way to power grids, and battery technologies. The transition is likely to take decades and will be bumpy at times, resulting in volatile swings in commodity prices, spreads, and inventories.

This channel sheds light on fundamental, quantitative, and macroeconomic market drivers and other key elements of the energy transition.
