Mining - 2xEP by 2030

Energy productivity in the Australian mining sector has been adversely impacted in recent years by factors such as depressed prices, particularly for bulk commodities; increased energy cost per unit of production; and increased energy intensity of production for base and precious metals. Declining ore grades have been a major contributor to the increase in the energy intensity of the production of base and precious metals.

Initiatives to improve energy productivity in the Australian mining sector present an opportunity to enhance economic productivity and lock in long-term competitive advantage.

The 2xEP Mining Working Group has collaborated to develop a road map for the mining industry to achieve double energy productivity by 2030.
