Energy and the mining industry

Energy and the mining industry

How do we guarantee the world has access to the indispensable materials it needs but also reduce the environmental impact of extracting them? This is a crucial question for the mining industry, and the answer is the use of green energy: EGP is ready to contribute with renewables and green hydrogen.

The events scheduled for 2021

Once again, this year EGP is among the protagonists at the meetings organized by the Canadian company Energy and Mines, an international reference point for contacts between the mining industry and the energy sector.

We play an active role in these events, sharing our knowledge and performing detailed analyses of the technological and geographical scenarios related to clean energies in the mining sector: this is a way to showcase our expertise, affirm our leadership in the renewables sector and put ourselves forward as a reliable partner for mining companies.

These are the events scheduled for 2021:

4-6 May

Energy and Mines Africa Summit

The African continent, extremely rich in both mineral resources and conditions favorable to the development of renewable energies, was the focus. Taking part in the conference was Nontokozo Nkosi, Head of the Commercial Office of Enel Green Power South Africa, who said, “At the Enel Group, we firmly believe that electrification is the simplest and most economical solution for decarbonization. We have also started allocating resources in South Africa to examine the business of green hydrogen specifically for South African mines as a tool to decarbonize some mining activities.

June 15-17

Energy and Mines Australia Summit

Experts at the conference agreed that the key issue around green hydrogen commercialization is cost. Lorenzo Ducci, Hydrogen Senior Commercial Officer at EGP explained that: "What’s really needed is a reduction in CapexEnergy costs, which account for 90% of hydrogen costs. The reduction of the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) on the energy side is forecast to happen soon, but the impact of this reduction is not so relevant because for every A$20/MW, you have a decrease of A$1 in the hydrogen price.”
