New nickel mine will host world’s biggest renewable micro-grid

The massive $1.7 billion West Musgrave nickel and copper project – given the green light by Australian mining company Oz Minerals late last week – will be a groundbreaking project for the sheer scale and influence of the renewable energy resources it proposes to harness. Oz Minerals aims to reach 100% renewable power at the remote mine. This will make it one of the largest operations in the world running on wind and solar only, and its “game-changing” operations will be highly informative for the operators of Australia’s national grid which intend to follow the same path over the next decade.
