BHP to test solar for remote mine sites as renewable costs fall
BHP Billiton Ltd., which forecasts wind and solar energy can achieve price parity with rival sources within a decade, is partnering in a battery-storage project to test technology that could be adopted at its remote sites. The world's biggest miner is participating with partners, including Origin Energy Ltd., in the $42.5 million Lakeland Solar and Storage Project in Australia's Queensland-state, to test a 13 megawatt solar photo-voltaic installation and grid-scale storage, BHP said.
