Webinar: Mining's Energy Transformation

Energy transformation represents an incredible opportunity for the mining industry.

Mining is an energy intensive activity, with substantial power needed in areas such as comminution, blasting, drilling, de-watering, transportation and ventilation. Operations have traditionally relied on conventional fuel sources such as diesel and oil, but economic and social forces have led to executives exploring alternative sources.

The first webinar of Austmine's Powering our Future Mines series will overview the current landscape of energy production and transmission in the mining industry. It will then identify and explore key opportunities to reduce energy consumption and transition to more sustainable and cost-effective solutions.

Speakers will discuss:

  • Energy sources and consumption in the mining industry;
  • Factors effecting the energy decisions of mining executives;
  • Opportunities for improving energy efficiency and emissions reduction;
  • Key energy projects implementing new innovations and technologies.

He has a lot of experience in the Mining, Oil and Gas, Manufacturing and METS industries. His mission lies in connecting technologies together that create an outcome for his customers. Jamie has recently been working with a food and beverage company to deliver energy savings in their business. Jamie draws an interesting parallel between what other industries are doing and what mining could be doing. In this session they will discuss:

  • The big trend towards “Electric Everything”
  • What is driving this trend and where is it going
  • What are other industries doing and what can we learn from them
  • What are the greatest opportunities for energy use reduction in heavy industries
  • How to integrate energy use targets with maintenance programs
  • Allocating energy costs across your business as an effective tool for change
