The restrictions on movement, distance, and access have significantly hit bottom lines and growth forecasts and this impact will likely be felt for some time to come. It’s a complex climate, but it’s one that can be managed with futureproof investment and planning.
When it comes to energy, the mining sector has faced plenty of criticism, from activists and investors alike. Renewable and sustainable solutions that pay attention to environmental pressures have become critical for the industry. Not only have investors and portfolios been dropped in the mining industry – another blow to the sector – but direct investment has followed suit.
However, the reality is that the mining sector is essential to the development of renewable energy solutions and platforms. The minerals and metals provided by the sector are the metals and minerals required by the sustainable energy industry for development and operations.
There has to be a balance between the needs of the sustainable energy sector, climate change, and the mining sector. And this can be found in new forms of energy and solutions that change the frontiers of mining power. Solutions that work with the sector’s abilities and requirements, and its ongoing innovation in mining depths, abilities, and investments.
