43. The quest for low carbon Aluminum - Redefining Energy podcast
- Feb 1, 2021 3:13 pm GMT
Aluminum is a key metal for the Energy Transition with the development of EVs, non-plastic packaging and Renewables. But it is also a very energy-intensive metal, consuming 15MWh/t aluminum: this represents 3% of the world’s power consumption. Some of the greenest producers are taking action to promote a cleaner way to produce aluminum; they are also pushing the market to properly price “green metal” vs “black metal”. To discuss those critical issues, we have the pleasure to welcome Lord Greg Barker on the show. After a distinguished career as UK Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change under David Cameron’s government from 2010 to 2015, Lord Barker is now Chairman of EN+. EN+ is the largest Aluminum producer in the world outside China and also the largest private owner of Hydro Capacity in the world. Lord Barker is on a mission to clean the Aluminum sector, and debates with Gerard and Laurent how the pricing of carbon will help boost the advent of green metals.
Solving some of our biggest issues in the C&I (Commercial and Industrial) sectors. Buildings use SO much energy, electricity, heat and of course cooling.
