Copper is an integral part of sustainable energy initiatives because of its reliability, efficiency and performance. Its superior electrical and thermal conductivities increase the energy efficiency of countless energy-driven systems that rely on electric motors and transformers. The same physical properties are vital in the collection and distribution of energy from solar, wind and other renewable sources.
Copper Connects Microgrids with Smart Grids
Microgrids are making the world more efficient and less reliant on huge, ineffective power systems.
Solar Energy Lifts Off at Airports
Airports are a perfect location for solar PV installations. Multiple airports around the world have already installed solar energy systems, which require copper to function efficiently and reliably. This case study examines the solar airport trend and its potential impact on the copper market.
