The mining industry accounts for around ten percent of global energy consumption. Hybrid solutions, which allow mine operators to cover part of their electricity needs with renewable energies, are becoming increasingly popular. Many mining companies are transitioning from CO2 intensive power generation from fossil sources to this clean, low-cost, low-maintenance type of power generation. As a result, the costs and risks for diesel, gas or heavy oil systems, including maintenance and service costs, can be significantly reduced. The combination with battery storage also ensures faster responsiveness and reliable power output and, therefore, trouble-free operation. This means that the conversion is not only worthwhile for the climate and environment, but also for the mine operators.
