Aluminium is the single most widely used material in solar power applications☀️.
Together🙌, EU solar & #aluminium industries can bolster the broad roll-out of PV production needed to repower Europe, enhancing EU strategic resilience https://t.co/wf7Hwi4t69.
Anna-Maria Karjalainen @amkarjalainen Director of Clean Energy Transition at ECI, commented at #EUSEW2022 on how copper enables electrification, while #electrification in turn can drive decarbonisation of copper production.

Ahead of tomorrow’s Energy Council, we’ve joined other energy-intensive sectors to repeat our call for urgent measures to address the worsening crisis in our industries.
In our sector, 50% of EU zinc & aluminium capacity is offline today & 30% silicon.
See our statement ⬇️ https://t.co/n74a3bBAG6
We support @MPPindustry Aluminium Transition Strategy because it provides a detailed pathway – including specific real-economy milestones – to decarbonise our sector in line with 1.5°C objective.
The imperative is to act now, in this decade, read how 👉https://t.co/oKOakZv4bK. https://t.co/tAypujden4
The energy measures announced by @EU_Commission might provide some much-needed immediate relief, but do very little to tackle the extremely high energy costs (and gas prices in particular) with the risk of jeopardising 🇪🇺 production and jobs.

ECI, with @Eurometaux @EUROFER_eu and @EU_Aluminium, call on the European Parliament’s @EP_Environment to fully address the environmental, health & safety and social impacts of EU waste exports through the #WasteShipments Regulation review.
Together with other energy-intensive sectors, we’ve called for more EU urgency to solve the spiralling industry crisis from high electricity & gas prices.
We call upon EU leaders to provide precise relief measures that can be implemented swiftly to ensure our continued viability https://t.co/FDzUeJlTLu
Bernard Respaut, Chief Executive at the ECI on #SOTEU2022 today. With copper as a key enabler of #EUGreenDeal & #RePowerEU goals, the announcement of a raw materials act by the Commission President is welcome. The EU must support manufacturing of strategic metals in Europe
President @vonderleyen announces the EU’s #CriticalRawMaterials Act at #SOTEU.
“We will identify strategic projects all along the supply chain, from extraction to refining, from processing to recycling”
The metals industry is ready to support! Read more: https://t.co/NXGWwUDvpC https://t.co/aP94HTkoNX
Today's #TTE Council took important actions in fighting high energy prices. We need a coordinated approach to electricity & gas prices + any inframarginal cap should not apply to long-term contracts, including PPAs, with a carve-out for long-term contracts. https://t.co/EQBY073Ffo
