For three years, the European Copper Institute has worked with seven partners in the IndustRE consortium to develop solutions for the effective decarbonisation of industry. Rooted in the concept of redesigning industrial processes to use higher shares of renewable electricity, a tool set has now been developed for companies to use as part of their decarbonisation strategy.
Is it feasible to power European industry fully with renewable energy? From the perspective of the copper industry, we present some of the challenges to be faced, and opportunities to be seized, for this scenario to come to fruition.
The results of the 2017 European Copper in Architecture Awards 18 have been announced.
Today, ECI is pleased to launch the #AccelerateET social media initiative, aiming to intensify the energy transition conversation by highlighting the EU’s champions of decarbonisation.
With a strong focus within the European Union on moving towards a low-carbon future, buildings are a key area where improvements can and should be made. Find out how copper could play a role in creating greener, smarter and healthier buildings.
Our member companies are at the forefront of implementing low-carbon energy solutions. One in particular, Codelco, tells a compelling story about transforming existing business operations based on fossil fuels into greener solutions fit for a cleaner future.
A low-carbon future relies on raw materials, including metals. There can be no wind or solar energy, nor electric vehicles, without copper, aluminium or steel, to name but a few.
The European Copper Institute and the Buildings Performance Institute Europe invite you to a conference on smart buildings, which will explore the policy aspects of integrating the concept into EU legislation, and also real-world examples.
Dr Katia Lacasse of the European Copper Institute has defined five points concerning copper, carbon pricing and future competitiveness in the European Union ahead of tomorrow’s Eurometaux-led meeting that asks: how can we really enable Europe’s low-carbon transition?
ECI contributed data and expertise to a recently-launched website providing scientific information about the behaviour of metals in the environment, targeting users of all backgrounds and levels of experience.
