Austmine Sustainability Webinar Series Part 2 - Renewable Energy’s Role in Mining’s Future

In a world which is increasingly connected, the mining industry is under close scrutiny from communities, government and investors. The benefits from mining can be vast for all stakeholders, but the future of the industry is inextricably linked to our ability to minimise the environmental footprint and community impact of operations, while maximising economic gains.

Key to mining’s future is innovation. We must look towards creative technologies, adaptive processes and new procedures to transform mining into a sustainable and safe practice, that communities are more willing to embrace.

This webinar series will feature presentations from industry experts on the pathway to achieving sustainability for the mining industry, exploring current trends and emerging innovations that are central to our future prosperity.

Part 2 of our Sustainability Series will focus on Renewable Energy’s Role in Mining’s Future. With leading nations around the world committed to reducing global warming levels, investment in renewables continues to grow. However, renewables make up just 2.5% of mining’s energy mix, which is very low compared to other industries. Mining companies will need to consider their energy transition to ensure social license to operate.

This webinar will describe the benefits and challenges of implementing renewable energies into the mining industry, providing examples of current operations who are leading the way in this space.

Topics discussed will include:

  • The current energy mix in mining
  • Drivers of change for the energy mix
  • Utilisation of solar, wind and hydro in mining operations
