Microgrid solutions for Mining

We electrify the world with advanced grid technologies to accelerate the energy transition.

GE

As the global energy transition drives the growth of electric vehicles, renewable energy, hydrogen, and battery storage systems, demand for essential minerals of the energy transition value chain is on the rise. Coupled with this surge is the mining industry’s commitment to further support the decarbonization journey in terms of its own operation, electrification, and power generation needs.

With their commitment to reducing carbon emission by 30% through 2030 and 100% by 2050, the mining industry is facing some challenges

Corporate sustainability and mine decarbonization continue to be challenged with efficiency, electrification and renewable investment. To decarbonize, diesel systems need to be replaced with new electrified mine equipment. This means considering potential investments in renewable and energy storage for remote power generation. Operational challenges may need to be addressed - like network dependent peaking to avoid heavy price penalties associated with intermittent large loads. Any production or critical equipment downtime due to electrical reliability and resiliency may benefit from a holistic electrical evaluation of the mine.

Our approach brings key advantages

Our holistic support for the mining industry is focused on delivering greater mine power reliability, resiliency, energy independence, and electrical experience. This is all achievable through advanced grid controls, automation, and digital features that connect complex power and electrical infrastructure across your mine.

Our solutions are flexible, scalable, and configurable to support your specific needs. From a first equipment pilot to a full end-to-end solution, or anywhere in between, we can help bring your utility into a new era of opportunity. Our broad experience lets us better understand your needs as we develop a path to achieve your desired outcome. GE brings a complete range of technologies and power and electrification knowledge together to enable cleaner, safer, more competitive, and more efficient operation for your facility.
