Resource Library

data base

European Copper Institute and its network of eleven Copper Centres throughout Europe provide a copper publications list – a range of resources in support of the correct and efficient use of copper and copper alloys for major applications.

    2015 Annual Report
    ECI and its network of national associations in Europe, collectively part of the Copper Alliance, continued its efforts to defend and grow markets for copper, ensure fair market access for copper products, and support the copper industry’s license to operate.
    Mineral resources in life cycle impact assessment—defining the path forward
    New, harmonized terminology is discussed and proposed in a paper published recently in the International Journal of Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA), entitled “Mineral resources in life cycle impact assessment—defining the path forward”. Co-authored by the ECI, this new paper, supports the LCA practitioners to build mutual understanding with the mineral industry, and recommends tools for use in life cycle sustainability assessment.
    ECI Input into the Public Consultation on Circular Economy (August 2015)
    Global competition for resources is increasing. Supply concentration of resources, particularly critical raw materials outside the European Union, makes European industry and society dependent on imports and increasingly vulnerable to high prices, market volatility, and the political situation in supplying countries.
    Energy Union: ‘First stop, efficiency’
    energy efficiency, EU, policy
    A new briefing from the Coalition for Energy Savings takes stock of the state of energy savings in the EU and of its potential to reap the multiple benefits of an energy-efficient European Union.
    Ecodesign Directive: Six Reasons Why Building Automation Should Be Included in the 2015-2017 Working Plan
    building, EU, partnerships, policy
    Action on making the current policy frameworks more supportive of unlocking the large-scale savings of Building Automation and Control Systems (BACS) contributes to several dimensions of the Energy Union strategy.
    The Role of the Demand Side in the Power System
    EU, policy
    The consultation on a new market design represents an opportunity for the European Union to embark on a course to increase the weight of demand in the power system.
    The Use of Electricity in Heating and Cooling Could Facilitate the Penetration of Renewables and Lower Carbon Emissions in Europe
    Energy and renewables
    Following the European Commission’s Heating & Cooling Strategy Consultation Forum, held in Brussels on September 9th, the European Copper Institute (ECI) is convinced that very significant opportunities exist, within the heating & cooling sector, to save energy, to increase the use of renewable-based technologies, thus reducing the dependency on imported fuels, and to better connect the EU’s electricity and thermal energy markets.
    Copper Industry Calls for New Approach to Reduce EU Carbon Emissions
    Energy and renewables
    ECI’s plan identifies strategies for seven copper-based technologies that could deliver substantial carbon reductions in the downstream industrial, residential and service sectors. Fully implemented, the plan could reduce EU CO2 emissions by 25%, or 1,100 million tonnes per year, by 2050, versus 2011 levels.
    Copper's Contribution to a Low-Carbon Future
