When it comes to electrification of our energy systems, copper is likely to be one of the largest beneficiaries. As an excellent conductor of electricity and being so malleable and ductile alongside having a high resistance to corrosion, copper is the perfect metal for electrical wiring. With growth expected on many fronts, including an upgrade of the grid infrastructure, strong electric vehicle sales and a more expansive electric vehicle charging infrastructure, the demand for copper is likely to rise over the coming decades.
In this session will explore
+ What makes copper so unique and whether any substitutes can contend with this metal
+ Demand growth projections
+ The circular economy for copper
During this week of webinars, we explore the commodities that will enable the decarbonisation effort and energy transition, as well help navigate clients through this emerging megatrend.
+ Raising the price of Carbon: the EU’s strategy to meet its climate goals
+ Platinum’s role in the energy transition: From abatement technology to the hydrogen economy
+ Nickel’s role in the energy transition: Electric vehicle battery demand to transform nickel’s demand profile
