Solar power generation requires 5.5 tons of copper per MW 1
According to the Edison Electric Institute, the U.S. electric transmission network consists of more than 600,000 circuit miles of lines, 240,000 of which are considered high-voltage lines (230 Kilovolts and greater). Copper is a key material component of transmission, which consists of structural frames, conductor lines, cables, transformers, circuit breakers, switches and substations.
The 8 million electric vehicles on the road internationally in 2019 are expected to increase to 50 million by 2025 and almost 140 million vehicles by 2030. EV sales are expected to reach almost 14 million vehicles annually in 2025 and 25 million vehicles annually in 2030. 2
A 3 megawatt (MW) wind turbine contains up to 4.7 TONS OF COPPER, and often remote locations require extensive cabling to connect to the grid, especially offshore wind farms.
