Keynote Address: Energy is Everything

One of the standout moments of the conference was the keynote address, “Energy is Everything,” by energy expert Alex Epstein. Epstein discussed the crucial role of affordable and reliable energy in global human flourishing, particularly in developing nations. He emphasized the continued importance of coal and other fossil fuels to provide energy access worldwide, citing their significant reserves and potential to support improved energy delivery systems. This session and others sparked conversations at the conference around the future of energy grids and the challenges of achieving “net zero by 2050.”

Themes of Innovation and Responsibility

Throughout the conference, the themes of innovation and responsible mining worked their way into discussions and presentations. Attendees had a chance to advance their knowledge on reducing emissions, promoting sustainability, and enhancing safety practices in the mining industry. These themes underscore a collective commitment to meeting society’s needs while prioritizing environmental stewardship and ethical practices—values that align closely with Copps Industries’ commitment to customers.
