Webinar recording | Can hydro power mines?

Thu, Apr 11, 2019 2:30 PM CEST{LOCAL_TZ}

Is hydropower a viable option to support mining operations’ energy needs?

Whether pumped hydroelectric, run-of-river, or small hydropower systems there is a growing need to use Africa’s vast hydro potential to boost reliability of power in remote areas, and specifically for the mining industry.

The potential is there, however, it’s not without its financial, operational and environmental challenges.

This webinar, moderated by ESI Africa editor Nicolette Pombo-van Zyl and Mining Review Africa editor Laura Cornish address the commercial and operational value of hydropower at Africa’s mines.

1. How can hydropower development benefit new and existing mining projects in remote parts of Africa?
2. Weighing in on the financial benefits – capex vs. opex vs. traditional diesel power supply.
3. How to incorporate hydropower into organisational corporate social responsibility for communities
4. A view on environmental impact assessment best practices for hydropower projects
5. How can hydropower projects mitigate the effects of climate change to remain a relevant source of power for mining operations?
