Copper in Renewable Energy


Increased energy efficiency and renewable energy play a key role in fighting the growing effects of climate change.

Copper is increasingly used for renewable energy systems that produce power from various sources such as wind, thermal, solar or hydro, as it has the highest electrical conductivity of all non-precious metals. Since copper can be recycled repeatedly without a loss in performance, it helps to minimize raw material consumption for energy systems that help protect the environment.

Overall, this calls for the highest efficiency in mineral operations which in turn minimizes social license challenges.
