Status Of Exploration For Geothermal Resources In India
Journal Article: Status Of Exploration For Geothermal Resources In India
AbstractThis paper gives a detailed description of the results achieved in geothermal exploration studies in various areas of India, including shallow and deep drilling. Two areas appear to be the most promising targets for further investigation: Puga and Talapani. The various uses of the geothermal resource are space-heating, including greenhouses, refrigeration, refining of chemical by-products and, finally, power generation. The data obtained so far suggest that Puga area alone has high-enthalpy resources capable of exploitation for electricity generation through binary cycles. The potential for power generation has been estimated at 1840 MWe using binary cycles and 10,000 MWt for direct heat utilization.
