CSP and mining integration potential analysed in new guide

CSP Today have released a new guide examining the prospects for concentrated solar power to be utilised in the mining industry.

With recent legislative and economic changes in both established and emerging CSP markets, the industry is experiencing its most challenging time. Increasingly, developers are evaluating industrial applications to expand their business, and recently the spotlight has turned to the mining sector.


Mining operations have themselves faced challenges with network access and a dependence on fossil fuels, often requiring mobilisation over long distances, to satisfy their 24-7 energy requirements. The rising cost of this process has made dispatchable CSP with storage an ideal solution. Now, CSP companies are looking to understand the requirements of the mining industry in order to work closely with the sector.

Released on Monday, the ‘CSP Today Industrial Applications Guide: Mining' provides insight into how concentrated solar power can become the mining industry's technology of choice in meeting energy demand.

The document analyses the integration potential and current mining operations. In addition, it features a case study on Minera el Tesoro in Chile, the world's first CSP plant integrated into a mining process worldwide.
