Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Aluminum is one of the most electricity-consuming manufacturing processes around, so it stands to reason that there is a lot of energy 'embedded' in aluminum.

It does sound promising - noting of course, that it only moves the problem to electricity generation, where there are a lot of options, but where those currently used are also problematic (coal, gas, nuclear, etc...)
