Fuelling the renewable energy revolution
According to REN21, the global multi-stakeholder network focused on renewable energy policy, renewable energy now accounts for around one-third of total installed power generation capacity worldwide. Given the need to for the world to continue its transition to a low-carbon economy, the renewable energy revolution needs to continue apace in the coming decades. And the material that sits at the heart of delivering this revolution is steel.
From on-shore and off-shore wind turbines to solar installations worldwide, our innovative steel solutions play a central role in delivering the energy infrastructure the world needs. In fact, clean energy sources like wind and solar are dependent on steel and are more steel-intensive than traditional fossil-fuel power plants and infrastructure.
More than 80% of the components in a typical wind turbine are made from steel. We’re a leading supplier of specialist steels to the wind energy industry, supplying heavy plates and coils for towers, reinforcing bars and ballast for foundations, and electrical steels for generators.
