Index / Geothermal Energy / Economics

In the shadows of wind and solar, another clean energy source is rapidly gaining steam and inciting equally lucrative profits. With about 10,500 MW installed to date, geothermal energy hasn't yet reached the scale of its cleantech cousins. Wind, for example, has ~142,000 MW of installed capacity worldwide; Solar has about 18,000 MW. But the wonders of geothermal energy are spreading far and wide. Its capacity is forecast to double in the next five years to ~21,000 MW. And related stocks have been offering hefty returns to those willing to take a look at this unloved sector.... More →

The Australian Geothermal Energy Association (AGEA) has sought data from MMA on the predicted costs of a range of generation technologies likely to be operating in the Australian market up to 2030 and beyond utilising its own and globally credible data bases. AGEA has sought cost predictions for the years 2020 and 2030 from the technologies utilising the following energy sources:

1. Geothermal:
a. Hot Rocks (with enhanced geothermal systems)
b. Projects utilising the heat from hot sedimentary rocks (i.e. as in Victoria).
c. Direct heat projects (displacing the need... More →

Megan Geuss reports that most people think of Iceland when they think of geothermal power. On that island, approximately 90 percent of homes are heated by geothermal energy. But some 12 gigawatts of geothermal power are generated worldwide, and the US is one of the largest producers of it, generating nearly 3.4 gigawatts in 2013.

The Steamboat Complex is within the Reno city limits, and it is made up of seven smaller plants that collectively generate 78 megawatts of power. A typical coal-fired power plant can generate around 660 megawatts of power, so the Ormat system 78 megawatts a... More →

Because of its location on the Pacific's "ring of fire" and because of tectonic plate conjunctions, California contains the largest amount of geothermal generating capacity in the United States. In 2007, geothermal energy in our state produced 13,000 gigawatt-hours of electricity. Combined with another 440 GWh of imported geothermal electricity, then geothermal energy produced 4.5 percent of the state's total system power. A total of 43 operating geothermal power plants with an installed capacity of nearly 1,800 megawatts are in California, about two-thirds of the total United States... More →

In 2013, Matthijs, of the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, published a hydrochemical and geomicrobial study of the effects of ground-source heat pumps and aquifer-thermal energy storage. Shallow geothermal energy (SGE) systems use the subsurface as a source for thermal energy or as a medium to store seasonal heat. These systems provide heating and cooling in the built environment, and are considered to be a technology that can contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The reduction of greenhouse gas emission by SGE systems strongly depends on the source of electricity used in t... More →

As the Senate prepares to consider the climate bill that Senators Barbara Boxer (D-Cal) and John Kerry (D-Mass) release Wednesday, Sept. 28, public focus will soon shift to the contentious topic of climate change and energy reform.

Emissions reduction legisltation will mean more momentum for renewable energy sources, and one of the brightest spots in the world of renewables is geothermal energy. Geothermal energy is naturally generated in the earth's core (which is hotter than the surface of the sun) and presents itself as a clean, renewable and domestic source of energy, as it can ...
