How to calculate Fermi energy of metals?

I would like to know how to calculate the fermi energy of metals using 
For example, Cu has a fermi energy of around 7.0eV, which can also be 
calculated using the general formula involving carrier concentration (, the
three dimensional case.) I would like to know how can I obtain this value 
(approximate) from the bulk metal unit cell. 

I am interested in transition metals mostly.
