Visiongain calculates the geothermal energy market to be worth $12.94bn in 2012. This includes spending on the construction of geothermal power plants used to produce electricity, and spending on the installation of geothermal heat pumps, district heating systems, and the other applications that make up the direct use geothermal submarket.
Geothermal energy is a type of thermal energy generated and stored at accessible depths in the Earth’s crust. It can either be used in power plants to produce electricity or used directly in a number of applications. In the first instance, the steam or vapour from reservoirs of hot water found a few miles or more below the Earth’s surface are used to drive a turbine to produce electricity. In the second case, direct use geothermal systems use resources at lower temperatures than are required for most geothermal power plants. The applications tap hot underground water and distribute the heat through pipes for various uses, including district and space heating, greenhouse heating and aquaculture, among others.
The geothermal energy market is likely to see significant investment over the next ten years, though growth will be unevenly spread throughout the world as each region is influenced by a diverse array of factors. This new report explains how the market will develop as a multi-billion dollar sector, revealing geothermal energy developments throughout the world and including regional or country specific forecasts and analysis for both the electricity and direct use parts of the market.
