Reduce energy costs and environmental impact of off-grid mines
Microgrid business case for mines
Download the white paper
To test the viability of storage plus renewables for brownfield mining sites, we considered four scenarios that are optimized using HOMER Pro microgrid modeling software, the global standard for rapid assessment of least cost solutions for clean, reliable, distributed power and microgrids.
The scenarios compared the following benefits:
- Fuel saving and associated reduction in CO2 emissions & maintenance costs
- Reduced levelized cost of electricity with an attractive internal rate of return on investments
- Improved power quality and reliability
