Gold Fields - Alternative Energy in Mining

  • CORE Innovation Hub Basement, FLUX, 191 St Georges Tce Perth, WA, 6000 Australia (map)

The Australian Institute of Energy’s Young Energy Professionals (YEP WA) invites you to hear from Tsakani Mthombeni, Group Head of Carbon & Energy for Gold Fields, while he is in Australia.

As part of Gold Field’s vision to be a global leader in sustainable gold mining, they have recently released an RFP for a 40MW on-site solar PV system for their South Deep mine in South Africa and are aiming for 20% renewable energy for all new mines. They have already commissioned a 24 MW gas-powered plant at their Granny Smith mine in WA and installed a PV system on their head office in Johannesburg which has reduced grid imports by 60%.

Tsakani will provide an overview of the financial, reliability, and sustainability drivers behind these initiatives and the process they have undertaken to develop a strategy for achieving their targets. Read more.

Please join us for this informative event including industry networking opportunities, drinks, and canapés.
