Sustainable Mining Starts with Energy Innovations Brightest Bulbs

    • Technology

Mining trucks that carry loads as heavy as an airliner vs. the facilities of your company, or even your home; what do they each have in common?


They each feature similar engines within their power systems.


The mining sector consumes 4% of the world’s energy and leads many other sectors when it comes to energy innovations. Whether you oversee facilities, work in maintenance or lead a business, you could benefit from hearing about the mining industry’s journey in leveraging energy and power generation technologies and innovations in addressing economics and sustainability.


Join Thomas and Beau as they start with interesting anecdotes around the role of mining in our modern, connected lives. Did you know an average infant born today will need a lifetime supply of over 20 tons of lead, zinc, copper, aluminum, and iron? That is the same weight as about 14 passenger cars.


Thomas and Beau then dive into tech metals, and how human-kind’s recent focus on decarbonization, sustainability, digitalization and connectivity drive the rise of tech metals such as copper, lithium, cobalt, and nickel.


The duo then take the listeners through a virtual tour of a modern mine site and debate:



How do energy and power innovations help the mining industry improve sustainability and reduce environmental impact?
What makes some of the world’s top miners get recognized as the most innovative companies?
Healthcare facilities, data centers, manufacturing facilities or commercial buildings; learnings from the mining sector that other industries can leverage in their energy systems.
Why watch predictive analytics and prognostics closely?
