Copper's superior thermal and electrical conductivity, combined with its 100% recyclability make copper a truly green material perfect for building a sustainable world.
Copper and Sustainability
- Copper in the Technologies of Tomorrow and Today
Tankless, or on-demand, water heaters supply hot water needs without having to maintain a reservoir of water at high temperature 24 hours a day. Today, with rising oil prices, declining supply and a sincere desire to find more sustainable sources of power, wind energy has never been more popular. The average homeowner and many industries spend a significant portion of their energy costs on heating water. One way to minimize this is by using the sun to heat or support the need for heating water.
Copper Enables Energy Efficiency
- The Business Case For Energy Efficiency
It is well-known that energy efficient design contributes to a number of short and long-term societal benefits, including saving fossil fuels and reducing air emissions that cause poor air quality, acid rain and climate change.
