    GEOTHERMAL TO BOOM IN INDIA

    Govt plans to extract 10,000MW from geothermal energy to power rural India

    9 February 2015 (India TV)

    “…Geothermal energy is available in abundance [though largely untapped in India] but…[[the] Union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) recently drafted a national policy, which seeks to make India a global leader in the sector, generating 1000 MW in phase one, ending 2022 [by offering 30% of the capital cost, 30-50% for the research, design and development work, and up to Rs 50,000 for public good like space heating, greenhouse cultivation, cooking etc, using direct geo-exchange pumps]…[The] government has already decided to establish the first geothermal power plant in the country at Tattapani in Balrampur district…[It] is the most promising geothermal resource in central India. If the pilot project is successful, the state may plan generation of 10,000MW in a decade…The Union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) have assessed the potential of generating 10,600 Mwth from 340 hot springs spread across seven geothermal provinces in 11 states…[which] could be used to electrify rural parts of the country, especially for the cold-storages…[India was] one of the earliest countries to begin geothermal projects way back in the 1970s, but at present there are no operational geothermal plants…[chiefly] because of the availability of plentiful coal at cheap costs…” click here for more
