The 5th Annual Congress took place on November 27-29 at the Hilton Toronto. Since the first event in 2013, Energy and Mines has held 11 summits on alternative energy in mining in the key global mining markets of Canada, South America, UK, South Africa and Australia. This year’s summit aimed to provide energy professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the mining industry. It included workshops and sessions on the challenges of carbon and energy in mining. Other key themes included the risk associated with greenhouse gas emissions regulations and insecurities around energy use, cost and supply and the strategic role of carbon emission in shaping energy innovation in mining.
The summit highlighted realizing energy and carbon savings with mining microgrids, digitization and electrification for integrating renewables and harnessing the potential of digital technology. 2017 Agenda also outlined Natural Resources Canada’s Clean Growth in Natural Resource Sectors Program initiative and its funding opportunities to the mining sector to reduce energy consumption and GHG emission.
Senior representatives from Barrick Gold, Natural Resources Canada, Goldcorp, B2Gold, Newmont, Anglo American, The World Bank, Kinross Gold, New Gold, IAMGOLD, AngloGold Ashanti, ArcelorMittal, Teck Resources, Victoria Gold, Erdene Resources, Fortune Minerals, Bloomberg New Energy Finance, The Carbon Disclosure Project, The Mining Association of Canada, Cisco, and Avalon Advanced Materials, were among the 50+ speakers.
