Mine Electrification

Electrification is key to the clean energy transformation of mine sites.

The road to zero emissions requires the use of vehicles and machinery powered by renewable energy.

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.

Why Electrification?
  • Electric Mine Consortium - Reducing cost, carbon emissions and improving health outcomes.
  • Electric Mine Consortium - Protecting our Future

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.

State of Play: Electrification

Mine electrification is a foundation enabler for the clean energy transformation of mine sites. The mining industry sees it as one of the most pressing transformation imperatives for the industry, facilitating precision automation and the digitisation of mine operations, whilst improving environmental and health outcomes.

Unearthed Electric Mine Simulation

The Electric Mine Consortium (EMC) is launching the ‘Electric Mine Simulation’ crowd challenge in partnership with the OZ Minerals Think & Act Differently ideas incubator and Unearthed. The Challenge seeks to attract companies and individuals from around the world to propose approaches for developing a scalable electric mine design simulation platform

Supporters

The electric mine consortium and international mining, convener of the electric mine conference in Stockholm in 2022, work in a collaborative partnership to further the goals of mine electrification.
