India finally gets going on GeoThermal


The vision of the geothermal policy is to make a substantial contribution to India’s long-term energy supply and reduce our national greenhouse gas emissions by developing a sustainable, safe, secure, socially and environmentally responsible geothermal energy industry, apart from creating new employment opportunities and leading to environmentally sustainable development by the means of deployment of 1,000 MW(therm) and 20 MW(elect) Geothermal Energy Capacity in the initial phase till 2022 and 10,000 MW(therm) & 1000 MW(elect) by 2030. Mitigating demand side electricity requirement by deploying Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP’S) and retrofitting the existing HVAC systems with Geo-exchange based system. Resource Assessment is being planned in 2016-2017 for public domain.
