Mapping out the key ingredients in the development of an all-electric mine
Under pressure from investors, governments and the general population, many of the world's largest miners are targeting major reductions in Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030 and net-zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2050.
To reach these targets, mining companies will need to make substantial investments in the key enablers of decarbonisation - namely electrification of equipment and transitioning to the use of renewables for electricity generation.
Mining Magazine, in association with ABB, have produced a whitepaper taking a deep dive into the practicalities of electrifying mobile mining equipment and, by extension, achieving an all-electric mine.
