Energy Policy WA is supporting increasing renewable energy for mining projects in remote locations using local solutions.

Mining companies are committing to ambitious emissions reduction targets, so we put together a summary of the WA mineral sector’s greenhouse gas emissions and energy use.

Remote mines which rely on diesel or trucked liquefied natural gas for power generation are a key focus. We published a case study showing how some mines are deploying renewable generation to save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


Hybrid Power Purchase Agreement Guide and Template  assists new and existing mines to increase their use of onsite renewable generation, without incurring additional debt.
