The world is gradually transitioning away from hydrocarbons to greener alternatives to meet its energy needs. While this process will continue to unfold over decades, the transition has already started to accelerate. The advent of electric vehicles and growth in renewable energy are exciting catalysts of change. But to be successful, these applications – among others – will require the development of green infrastructure around the world. Base metals are key enablers of the green technologies powering this megatrend and have reinvented themselves as thematic investments offering exciting long-term prospects for investors. With regulators seeking to mitigate climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, investors can also gain access to carbon emission allowances, which are bound to become more valuable as environmental policies become tighter.
In this webinar, IBKR will be joined by WisdomTree to discuss the role of metals and carbon emission allowances in the energy transition:
- New technologies and a drive to reduce carbon emissions
- Which metals are integral to the energy transition?
- Which applications do these metals have?
- European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) as the foundation of the EU’s policy to mitigate climate change
