The disruption to the power supply is one of the top ten business risks in the Mining and Minerals sector.
The amount of energy required to run mine sites and their facilities is extremely large and the mining sector measures their ‘energy intensity’ per tonne of the product being mined (varied across location, mining type, and processing type).
Power usage isn’t just associated with running mine operations, it’s also an essential supply item to support the enormous mining community such as accommodation, cribs, support services, and administration facilities.
Site infrastructure to support the mining operations is not always centrally located to the mine site. Accommodation, cribs, and support services are generally transportable and when there is no access to mains power, rely on large diesel generators.
REDEI provides renewable energy options such as wind, solar, and even hydrogen as an easily-transported and simple to set-up reliable power source.
