There is no doubt that solar PV is the cheapest form of electricity generation globally. However, how does its application apply to remote mining operations?
Africa is blessed with great solar resource, as well as mineral and metal resources – making mining an important industry on the continent. But remotely-located mining operations often mean that energy generation is an important concern.
In SOLA’s Ebook on how Energy Storage Solutions can help remote mining in Africa, you will learn:
- Why renewable energy is an important choice for remote mining electricity provision
- How market factors mean an increasingly appealing business case for energy storage solutions
- The potential for priming the battery metals market in African countries through bolstering use-case examples
- How microgrids can handle operational demands such as load step changes
