A synergy is created when renewable energy systems are integrated into existing and planned mining operations. This is of particular interest to remote or otherwise off-grid operations that are faced with expensive logistical challenges and environmental hurdles associated with transporting fuel over large distances to be used for on-site thermal generation or constructing expensive transmission infrastructure to bring on-grid power to their operations. Wasted energy is also an unnecessary cost. Having a comprehensive energy strategy is key to cost-effective mining operations.
Our team understands the needs of mining operators—the need for uninterrupted, cost-effective means of supplying energy to power their operations. Developers and operators who may need to rely on higher cost coal-fired, oil, and diesel generation can offset their carbon footprint and the risk of price escalation and security of hydrocarbon fuel supplies by integrating renewable energy schemes into their mine plans.
Some of the plentiful and lasting potential benefits of renewable energy include the following:
