 The energy industry is particularly sensitive to geopolitical issues and the evolution of international relations in terms of many different perspectives, conflicts, member states, regional organizations and geography. Furthermore, the near future could bring restrictions in the supply of strategic minerals such as lithium and cobalt. The geopolitics of lithium, cobalt and other raw materials deserve special attention. The risk of the cartelization of supply.
