The renewables sector is developing highly innovative technologies and business models to meet the specific needs of the global mining sector. “Essentially, what we’re doing is making solar as convenient as a diesel generator. Our units are extremely easy to install and recover,” says Will Rayward-Smith, General Manager, SunSHIFT.

In this week’s feature interview, Rayward-Smith discusses SunSHIFT’s unique technology and approach to solar for mines which uses a modular, re-deployable solution that can quickly replace a small percentage of diesel consumption and be easily expanded.
