Electrification is key to the clean energy transformation of mine sites.
The electric mine consortium
Leading companies in the mining industry are taking real steps towards decarbonisation. Over a dozen mining and service companies have joined forces to create the electric mine consortium with the ambition to accelerate progress towards the fully electrified zero CO2 and zero particulates mine.
The big picture
The energy transition is real, and it is here.
The way the we generate, store and harness energy around the globe is undergoing a period of major change. A global ecosystem has begun to emerge to underpin the innovation and scaling of electrification technologies. A rare trifecta, electrification will provide economic, health and environmental value for the mining industry.
Reducing cost, carbon emissions and improving health outcomes.
Electrification creates enormous opportunities for operational cost savings, innovative mine designs and resilience against uncertainty. It will reduce the exposure to carcinogenic diesel particulates and reduce scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions by 100%.
The value upside of this not only increases productivity in existing assets, but also improves a company’s ability to unlock deeper and more remote ore bodies.
