Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Resources Geoffrey R. Pyatt will travel to London, United Kingdom from November 27-29, 2023, to participate in the “Resourcing Tomorrow” conference and meet with UK and international government and industry leaders to advance U.S. priorities on critical minerals, energy resilience, and support for Ukraine.

The theme of the conference is “Bridging the Disconnect to Supply the Metals Required for the Energy Transition.”  Assistant Secretary Pyatt’s keynote address will focus on the importance of diversifying critical minerals supply chains and U.S. work with public and private sector partners through the Minerals Security Partnership (MSP) and the recently announced Minerals Investment Network for Vital Energy Security and Transition – MINVEST.  The MSP is a collaborative initiative with the United States and 13 global economies that works to identify and support critical minerals projects in extraction, production, processing, and recycling that adhere to high environmental, social, and governance standards.

While in London, Assistant Secretary Pyatt will meet with UK and international officials to further collaboration on critical minerals and to advance cooperation on Ukraine energy sector assistance, European energy security, the clean energy transition, and supply chain security.  Assistant Secretary Pyatt will note appreciation for the United Kingdom’s robust energy sector support for Ukraine.  Assistant Secretary Pyatt will also underscore the importance of accelerating international support for Ukraine’s immediate energy security needs, in the face of increased Russian attacks targeting Ukraine’s critical energy infrastructure.
