Last month I was a keynote speaker at the Renewable Energy and Mining Summit in Toronto. Given the quality and quantity of mining executives in attendance, I expected the mining industry with its heavy reliance on the remote delivery of a tremendous amount of power, was educated on renewable energy generation and energy storage. I was mistaken. While the mining industry is moving forward with alternative energy generation, it isn’t very educated on energy storage. But the good news is the EPCs and photovoltaic (PV) developers servicing the mining industry clearly “get it” and swamped the American Vanadium booth after my presentation.
