Based on the U.S. energy storage market assessment and analysis of the copper intensities of storage device and their installations, KEMA finds that the U.S. market for grid energy storage could result in a sizeable demand for copper. In particular, the copper intensity of storage installations appears to be significant though varied, ranging from zero to over three tons per megawatt (MW), depending on the installation configuration, type of electrical equipment, and storage type.2 The total incremental copper demand associated with U.S. grid energy storage is estimated to range from roughly 900 tons of copper to over 3,000 tons of copper.
