A review on geothermal energy resources in India: past and the present.

India hopes to have established electricity production to please the country's increasing energy needs by 2040. While solar and wind energy production have soared, geothermal energy has yet to be fully harnessed. In India, a total of about 340 geothermal springs have been discovered, spreading both orogenic and non-orogenic. In these springs, average temperatures range from 35. 0°C to the boiling point of water. In India, medium and low enthalpy geothermal energy resources/systems are abundant, with the latter being the most abundant. Recognizing the heat source and harnessing it is the primary component of a geothermal device. So far, research has shown that some geothermal regions have sufficient geothermal potential for direct heat use and power generation. Reser reservoir simulation studies have shown that if the Puga field is explored to a depth of at least 500 meters, it would produce more than MW of electricity.
