    Resnick Institute Director Harry Atwater gives opening remarks at our 2011 Critical Materials in Sustainable Energy Applications workshop. This workshop brought together a key group of people for a facilitated discussion to answer the question "How should we focus research and development efforts to best mitigate the effects of material criticality on achieving a sustainable energy future?" The workshop took place over the course of two days, and included four half-day closed-door working sessions, with additional plenary/keynote talks that were open to the Caltech community.

                Experts speaking on Capitol Hill about critical materials, including rare earth elements (REE) and strategic metals, which are essential for technologies used in a variety of applications such as cell phones, computers, cars, airplanes, batteries, and renewable energy systems. The United States is not self-sufficient in most of these critical materials, and for many of them we are reliant on foreign sources prone to disruption. For example, more than 97 percent of the U.S. and world supply of REE comes from China, and this supply has been restricted recently for several reasons, including political pressure.
