Panel discussion: Hitting climate targets with the electric mine


Climate targets have matured from broad, long-dated statements of intent from a few large miners five years ago, to specific year-on-year deliverables against which sitting executives will be measured. This has brought the need for workable emission-reduction technologies into sharp focus and, with that, the viability of the electric mine.

  • Is the industry progressing quickly enough on electrification?
  • Are equipment providers close to solving the electric heavy-haulage challenge?
  • Where is the diesel blind spots in the electric mine?
  • How important is the role of remote renewables for the electric industry?
  • Which technologies could move the electric mine from novelty to ubiquity?
