Abstract [en]

The iron and steel sector has traditionally been considered an important industry for strategic reasons. The focus on high-quality and innovative products has granted the European iron and steel producers a prominent position on the global market for iron and steel products. Today, European industries are facing new challenges. In this Sectoral Energy Report, ESA2 aims to identify action areas for ensuring the competitiveness of European iron and steel producers in a context of stringent climate change mitigation requirements and increased global competition.

Resources needed for steel production as well as the steel commodities themselves are traded on a global market. Hence, the sector in Europe is closely linked to trends in steel production in other regions. This report presents energy profiles for a number of regions which are key in steel production value chains, discussing regional trends in energy efficiency and GHG emissions reductions.

The action areas identified require a system approach for reaching the set goals of climate change mitigation while remaining competitive. ESA2 can contribute with a varied toolbox for assessing the future changes needed in the iron and steel sector as well as more reliable data. Thus, ESA2 can facilitate the transition towards sustainable steel production.
