Renewable energy development brings sustained momentum to the copper industry

an energy revolution is under way worldwide. With the gradual transformation of the world economy to a low-carbon and sustainable model, more and more countries have included the expansion of the use of clean and renewable energy in their future development goals, and some multinational enterprises, cities and countries have even promised to use 100% renewable energy in the future. As the largest renewable energy producer, consumer and investor in the world, China is at the center of this energy revolution. Copper, as an essential basic material for the development of renewable energy, will use its high efficiency and environmental protection to help the whole country try to force the transformation of global energy by reducing coal production, and meet new development opportunities in this process

China's renewable energy has a strong development momentum

8 according to the hardness of experimental materials, the 2018 China Renewable Energy academic conference hosted by the China Renewable Energy Society and supported by the International Copper Association and other institutions was held in Beijing. More than 1000 representatives from academia, enterprises, associations and the Government participated in the event, and discussed the future development and innovation direction of the renewable energy industry. Duxiangwan, academician of the Chinese Academy of engineering, said at the meeting that renewable energy will become the dominant energy in the future world. By 2050, China's renewable energy is expected to account for more than 50% of the total primary energy consumption, and the proportion of non fossil electricity in electricity is also expected to reach about 78%

in recent years, China's renewable energy production and consumption capacity has continued to upgrade. With the continuous expansion of the scale of renewable energy power generation in China, in the first half of this year, the power generation from non fossil energy sources such as hydropower, nuclear power, wind power and solar energy has accounted for 25.2% of the total power generation. A green and diversified energy supply system is being rapidly established in China. At the same time, according to BP world energy statistical yearbook, China accounted for 36% of the growth of global renewable energy consumption in 2017, and has become the driving force of global renewable energy consumption

at the same time, according to the aeon renewable energy country attractiveness index, China has maintained the status of Zui as a country with attractive investment in the global renewable energy field since 2015. At the beginning of 2017, the National Energy Administration of China issued the 13th five year plan for renewable energy development, and announced that it would invest 2.5 trillion yuan in renewable energy during the 13th Five Year Plan period

the use of renewable energy brings new opportunities to the copper industry

copper has the conductivity second only to silver, which can effectively improve the efficiency of electrical equipment. It is an essential material for the development of renewable energy. It is widely used in renewable energy power generation systems such as solar energy, wind power and hydropower, which are more common in ncm111, ncm523, ncm622 and ncm811, in order to promote the expansion of power generation and transportation, so as to reduce the impact on the environment

according to the research data of the International Copper Association, the average copper consumption in renewable energy systems is times higher than that of traditional power generation systems, in which the copper consumption per megawatt of wind turbines is 2.5-6 tons for the installation of hydraulic universal material testing machine, and 4 tons of copper per megawatt of solar photovoltaic power generation. According to the target of 105000 kW photovoltaic power generation in 2020, about 420000 tons of copper will be required. The research also shows that every ton of copper used in renewable energy power generation equipment can reduce 500 tons of carbon emissions, and the high energy efficiency brought by copper can also save users 2. 5% during the use of the equipment USD 10000 (about RMB 170000-17.25 million)

it is also worth mentioning that in addition to the well-known renewable energy systems of Zui, such as solar energy, wind power and hydropower, some emerging renewable energy applications, such as air source heat pump equipment, also require a large amount of copper. Compared with general heat source equipment, air source heat pump is more energy-saving, and it can obtain kwh of heat by consuming 1 kwh of electricity. Therefore, air source heat pumps are becoming an important tool in the "coal to clean energy" revolution in northern China. For example, in 2017, Beijing used air source heat pumps to replace 906000 tons of bituminous coal. A typical air source heat pump heating system uses about 20kg copper, and its supporting outdoor evaporator, indoor condenser and electricity also need to use copper as raw material
