Off-grid Solar: The Cost Saving Potential of Solar Hybrid Systems using forecasting and sky cams for Off-Grid Mines

Add-on solar and storage solutions help mining businesses make their operations more sustainable. Resource Extraction has been relying on fossil fuels for decades, and is now turning towards add-on renewables. Suntrace and Reuniwatt we will share their experience in the design and actual operation of off-grid solar projects, particularly for mines.

Topics discussed

  • Solar Hybrid Systems for Off-Grid Mines
  • Optimization of Off-Grid operation with sky cams

After the Webinar you’ll have an understanding of:

  • The electricity cost reduction potential through hybridization with low cost solar power for mining operations
  • The reliable integration into the existing off-grid power generation system
  • The role of short-term forecasting for a sucessful integration
  • Case Study results for HFO fuelled power generation combined with solar PV and battery storage, and for diesel power generation combined with solar PV
