Developing reliable, sustainable and affordable energy solutions for African mines

Energy is a major operational cost and strategic focus for the African mining sector today. Faced with significant power disruptions and energy price hikes, mines are now reviewing their power options for grid-tied and remote operations. Over the last 12 months, several African mines have issued requests for proposals for renewables and more are reviewing the business case for alternative solutions.

Following last year’s sellout event, the Renewables and Mining Summit & Exhibition in Johannesburg will examine innovative solutions and structures for reducing energy operating expenses and securing the power needs of African mining operations. It will offer critical insight from senior mining executives on the strategic and operational power challenges the sector is facing and current options under consideration. It will also provide detailed analysis from the utilities, energy experts, investors, and regulators driving new power options for the sector.
