The bottom line
Driving value through energy management in mining
Energy represents a tremendous improvement opportunity for mining companies since savings derived from more proactive energy management are inextricably linked to energy management.
Energy is one of the biggest expenses for mining companies constituting approximately 30% of total cash operating costs. Based on Deloitte’s experience, companies can reduce their energy consumption by 15-20% in existing mines through an effective energy management program, and up to 50% in new mines by rethinking the mine design with energy management in mind.
