Energy management is a crucial element of aluminium production processes – and as the voice of the industry, we’re at the forefront when it comes to advocating energy policies that are both practical and sustainable.
Europe-wide, the aluminium industry has reduced its electricity consumption by more than one-third since the 1950s, and by continuing in this direction, we can optimise both our own costs as well as the costs associated with the supply chains we’re part of.
Our energy management consultancy service, available to all members, has been active helping in this regard. This includes supporting with Climate Change Agreement energy rebates – a vital service particularly for smaller members who don’t have in-house experts in this area. We’re also in regular contact with government, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Aluminium and European Aluminium to help inform future policy on climate change and energy.
