Energy and Mines is excited to announce the third Toronto Energy and Mines Summit – the 7th event in our global summit series brining
together mine energy-decision makers with alternative energy providers.

To reflect the energy choices of the key mining audience, and to better align our agenda with the current issues facing corporate mining leaders and senior energy managers, the title of the event has been refined to  Energy and Mines – Renewables, Efficiency and Carbon Mitigation.

The Toronto event is the largest annual gathering of this nascent sector; the popularity of the summit is aided by it’s Bay Street, Toronto location – arguably the heart of global mining.

This year’s event has a stronger focus on the finance of mine energy projects but also features new mine-renewables case studies from Canada, USA, South America, Africa and Australia.

The event recently received very strong endorsement from one of our key sponsors, SolarReserve’s CEO, Kevin Smith.

“SolarReserve recognizes the important role that Energy and Mines is playing in connecting the mining and renewables sectors through these global Summits. As a sponsor of these high caliber events since the series’ inception, we value the heightened awareness of our company and advanced solar technology, as well as relationships with key stakeholders that we gain from the Summits and the newsletter.”
