Geothermal Heat and Power
Geothermal Heat and Power : Technology Roadmap / Beerepoot, Milou. Paris : Agence internationale de l’énergie, 2011, 52 p.
The aim of the Roadmap is to enable quick momentum gains in geothermal heat and power technology development to confront global sustainability and energy security challenges. It addresses technical, legal, policy, economic and organizational aspects of advancing development of these technologies. The report highlights the potential for geothermal to offer significant advancements in universally available, low-carbon, and reliable base-load power. It describes how, via a combination of policies to encourage development of geothermal resources and new technologies, geothermal energy could make up 3.5% of global electricity production and 3.9% of energy for heat by 2050, up from today’s 0.3% and 0.2%, respectively… (© IEA)
