The mining industry is a fundamental instrument of the global economy. It is also notoriously energy intensive. The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that approximately 11% of total final energy consumption can be attributed to the mining sector. Such intensity makes power generation decisions even more important. While the industry is predominantly powered by traditional fossil fuels, there has been a notable willingness to incorporate renewables, namely solar PV and wind, into mining operations.
Several renewable projects for mines were commissioned over the last decade. Navigant Research expects this trend to continue as renewable costs decrease and emphasis on decarbonization increases. Significant growth of renewables in mining operations is anticipated, resulting in global capacity nearly tripling through 2027. Growth is expected to be led by Asia Pacific, which is home to some of the world's largest mining economies such as China, India, and Australia. Latin America will also drive growth as economies like Chile seek to diversify generation sources due to dependence on fuel imports.
This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for renewable technologies at mining locations. The technologies discussed in this report are solar PV, wind, and battery energy storage. The study provides an analysis of the market issues, opportunities, and implementation challenges associated with integrating renewable technologies into powering mines. Global market forecasts for capacity and revenue, broken out by technology and region, extend through 2027.
