The Renewables Revolution: Opportunities in Mining and Trade

Start: Friday, Oct 22, 2021 @ 14:00
End:  Friday, Oct 22, 2021 @ 16:30

Join AmCham Australia for an exclusive late luncheon on Friday 22 October as we listen to a panel of experts on WA’s current trade with the United States and future opportunities for the mining sector.

Well-versed in the bilateral relationship with a unique WA perspective, US Consul General David Gainer will be joined by the Director General of the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science & Innovation Rebecca Brown, and Head of Business Development and Technical Projects at BHP Nickel West, Gary Frampton.

The global energy transition can provide huge opportunities for WA-based companies. More clean energy means more solar panels, wind turbines, electric vehicles, and large-scale batteries. But it also means more demand for the materials that make those technologies possible. WA businesses should be positioning themselves to benefit from new demand — like neodymium for wind turbines, lithium and cobalt for batteries, and copper for almost everything — in order to capture major growth opportunities in the years ahead.

With the announcement of a super-charged alliance among Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom, smart WA executives will be looking to strengthen ties with the AUKUS allies. Throughout COVID, for example, BHP has been partnering with Tesla, Caterpillar, GE, and Microsoft to unlock new opportunities as the world’s largest economies look towards a net zero future.
