For developing countries, new opportunities in geothermal energy

Uses of geothermal energy in food and agriculture. Opportunities for developing countries (cover)

New report explores uses of natural heat for food production and processing. Geothermal energy, the flow of heat energy radiating from the earth’s core, provides unique opportunities for cost efficient, sustainable food production and processing in developing countries, says the new report published by FAO: In some developing economies, as much as half of all food produced is lost post-harvest – that’s due in part...

EGS systems: the future of geothermal energy

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has recently posted an article which enphasizes the future of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS). While the amount of conventional hydrothermal power worldwide has reached nearly 12 gigawatts, exponentially more geothermal resources can be accessed through next-generation technologies known as enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). Through funding by the Department of Energy’s Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO), USA first commercial-scale EGS was...

Technology Roadmap – Geothermal Heat and Power

Technology Roadmap – Geothermal Heat and Power

The Technology Roadmap for Geothermal Heat and Power offers a strategic plan to maximise deployment of these energy resources by 2050. It projects that 1,400 TWh of electricity per year could come from geothermal power by 2050, up from 67 TWh at present.  Additionally, geothermal heat (not including ground-source heat pump technology) could contribute 5.8 EJ (1,600 TWh) annually by 2050. In order to reach these...
