Energeo Helping Mitigate Environmental Impact of Mining in Chile with Sustainable Energy Insights

Harwell, UK, 26th September 2016

Energeo Ltd have been selected to provide sustainable and renewable energy intelligence to support environmental impact mitigation in the Chilean mining sector. The project – managed by the Satellite Applications Catapult – is being funded by the Newton Programme, and The Satellite Applications Catapult intend to demonstrate the capability and versatility of Earth observation satellite technology in supporting day-to-day mining operations.

“Energeo are extremely proud to be providing renewable and sustainable energy intelligence to the Chilean mining sector” commented Ian Dee, Managing Director of Energeo. ”The unique, satellite technology derived, insights we will deliver, will allow detailed assessment of the potential for generating renewable and sustainable energy on or near site, supporting the mitigation of the wider environmental impacts of mining.”

Energeo will be undertaking a number of analyses in order to deliver a comprehensive database of solar suitable sites within a specific distance of existing and potential mining activity. Included will be detailed land use mapping, ground slope and aspect assessment, and intelligence regarding the size, installation costs, and financial and environmental yields to be expected from each site identified.
