Solar Thermal Energy for Industrial Uses December 2011 INTRODUCTION Heat is often underappreciated in public policy discussions on energy, frequently overshadowed by transportation energy and electric power. However, heat accounts for 37 percent of energy consumed within most developed countries, and 47 1percent of the world''s energy consumption.

In this chapter, we shall discuss the availability of various types of mineral and energy resources in the country. A mineral is a natural substance of organic or inorganic origin with definite chemical and physical properties.

Many of the world''s largest mining companies are evaluating greater use of renewable energy challenged with meeting growing demand for mineral resources often loed in countries and sites 20132022," Renewable Energy in the Mining Industry, Navigant Consulting, Inc., 2013.
These challenges are met by the appliion of energy to accomplish the work that includes the direct use of electricity, fossil fuel, and manual labor. The tables and analyses presented in this study contain estimates of electricity consumption for the mining and processing of ores,
the environment, and improving energy efficiency • The reduction of energy dependence on fossil fuels could be a key challenge for the mining sector. China may push the use of nonfossil fuels to 15% of the country''s total energy use by 2020. The 2015 target for nonfossil fuel is 11.4%.

Although demand for minerals and allied products is steadily increasing owing to population growth, the dynamic nature of the international economy, volatility of prices, environmental concerns and
Tracking the trends 2014 7 Productivity The new mining mantra Beyond giving rise to an untenable cost environment, the mining sector''s aborted drive to produce at any cost has led to massive inefficiencies. As a result, industry productivity (defined as the GDP value contribution an average worker creates in an hour of work) is hitting new lows.
Building industry and the industries associated with it have dominated as the second largest energy users of the world energy consumption. In China, 27.8% of total energy demand is dedied to the building sector  while energy expenditure in residential and commercial buildings stands for about 40% of Europe''s energy budget  .
An integral feature of this activity is the fact that it applies to nonrenewable resources. Thus, the first and guiding principle of sustainable development must be the reasonable and economical acquisition and use of mineral resources (Dubiński, Drzęźla 2005).

ADVERTISEMENTS: 5 Major mineralbased industries in India are: 1. Iron and Steel Industry 2. Copper Smelting Industry 3. Aluminium Industry 4. Lead arid Zinc Smelting Industry 5. Cement Industry. These industries use minerals, both metallic and nonmetallic, as raw materials and are based on ferrous and nonferrous metallurgical processes.
After a short recall of methodology, we have to examine successively: on a global standpoint, the energy consumption of the mineral industry, the breakdown of this consumption by forms of energy used, and its evolution on an analytical standpoint, the main factors which direct the energy requirements in mining, beneficiating and smeltinq
There is a strong demand in mineral industry for intensifying existing solidliquid operations such as adsorption so that more solids can be processed with low energy consumption and no major
Energy developments. Primary energy consumption grew at a rate of 2.9% last year, almost double its 10year average of 1.5% per year, and the fastest since 2010. By fuel, energy consumption growth was driven by natural gas, which contributed more than 40% of the increase.
