Across the world, regional energy shortages have compelled some mines to sharply curtail their power consumption.
In the U.S., it’s estimated that energy usage accounts for more than 15 percent of total mining production costs and that mines use 3 percent of all industrial energy.
These realities have become part of a powerful set of factors that, along with economic challenges, the accompanying fall in commodity prices, and the growing awareness of climate change is driving the mining industry to become more energy-efficient and find cost-effective ways to
perform their operations.
Accordingly, the mining community is being challenged to find electrical equipment and systems solutions that make mining operations:
1) reliable, efficient, and continuous
2) safer and protected
3) and sustainable
GE’s portfolio of
electrical solutions embraces and achieves each of those priorities.
