  • USA : Plant in Chile Opens South America's Doors to Geothermal Energy
    August 26, 2015
    Chile, a land of volcanoes and geysers, has started building South America's first geo -thermal plant, which would open a door to this kind of renewable energy in this country that depends largely on fossil fuels.

    The Cerro Pabellón geothermal project is "immensely important for the Chilean state, which started geothermal exploration and drilling over 40 years ago," but no initiative had taken concrete shape until now, Marcelo Tokman, general manager of the state oil company, ENAP, told IPS.

    Tokman said that once the plant is fully operational, it will be able to produce some 340 megatwatt-hours (MWh) a year that would go into the national power grid and would meet the consumption needs of 154,000 households in this country of 17.6 million people.

  • Iran : Iran Builds Mideast's First Geothermal Plant
    August 26, 2015
    Iran is building the Middle East's first geothermal power plant at the foot of an inactive volcanic peak as the country is racing to meet a runaway demand for electricity by its growing population. The pilot station in northwestern Meshguin Shahr in the Ardabil province is projected to come on stream in the next two years, putting Iran in the club of two dozen nations with the geothermal power generation capacity.

    The 50-megawatt project is in line with Iran's bid to expand its clean energy mix which is dominated by fossil fuels.
