Reducing energy costs and environmental impacts of off-grid mines

ABB Microgrid Business Case

Power systems in mining and other industries are seeing a major structural transformation as renewables and energy storage costs continue to decline and global pressure to mitigate CO2 remains strong. For off-grid mining in particular, renewable and storage technologies present an ideal opportunity not only to improve the mine’s environmental footprint, but also to reduce energy costs while improving power quality.

ABB helps mining customers in incremental hybridization to a low carbon and energy cost future with renewables and storage. The economic and operating benefits include:

  • Fuel saving (and associated reduction in CO2 emissions & maintenance costs)
  • Reduced Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) with an attractive Internal Rate of Return on investments (IRR)
  • Improved power quality
