Energy and supply chain shortages emphasize need for Smart solutions

30-11-2021 | Product webinar
Global electrification is vital if the world is to decarbonize and meet the Paris Agreement. Recent spikes in energy prices have shown how vulnerable the world is while it is reliant on fossil fuels. The long-term answer lies in using renewable energy and building out the smart electricity grid, while using innovative solutions in materials sourcing and processing to counter supply shortages.
