As the effects of climate change grow more apparent, the need to focus on renewable energy is even more important.
Because copper is a highly efficient conduit, it is used in renewable energy systems to generate power from solar, hydro, thermal and wind energy across the world.
Copper helps reduce CO2 emissions and lowers the amount energy needed to produce electricity. In many renewable energy systems, there is 12 times more copper than in traditional systems.
Copper is one of the best renewable resources. It is one of the few materials that can be recycled over and over again without a loss in performance.
Renewable energy sources provide nearly one-quarter of the world’s power, and copper plays an important role in making it as efficient as possible with minimal impact on the environment.
