Why Copper Matters

Copper is needed to meet clean energy goals, bolster supply chain resiliency and boost national security. Copper is also integral to everyday society, as it is used in virtually every electronic device made today, including the one you’re using to read this text. Copper is also used in plumbing to keep clean water flowing free of toxins and wiring to maintain comfortably warm and cool climates indoors.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal needs copper to achieve its big goals, as the law has called for the following:

  • 250,000 electric vehicle charging stations – requires ~10 million pounds of copper
  • $2.5 billion for low-emission vehicles – requires ~6 million pounds of copper
  • $2.5 billion for electric school buses – requires ~3 million pounds of copper
  • $15 billion for lead service line replacement – requires ~53-93 million pounds of copper

Copper is also known for its antimicrobial benefits. Copper saves lives and money by killing harmful bacteria. Antimicrobial copper surfaces help reduce the spread of germs and infection by 80%. Copper surfaces can also reduce infection rates by more than 50%. That’s why more hospitals are installing copper surfaces every day around the world.

Put simply – we need copper. With estimates for global copper demand from wind, solar, electric vehicles and battery applications expected to increase by 600%-900% by 2030, it is critical that projects like Resolution Copper are approved to bolster the United States’ copper supply.
