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

India hopes to have completed its energy supply by 2040, meeting the country's increasing energy needs by 2040. Although solar and wind energy production has grown significantly, geothermal energy has yet to be fully harnessed. In India, a total of about 340 geothermal springs can be discovered, spreading both orogenic and non-orogenic. Medium and low enthalpy geothermal energy resources/systems are found in India, with the latter being the most abundant. Understanding the heat source and harnessing it is the key to a geothermal system. Some geothermal areas have sufficient geothermal potential for direct heat use and power generation, according to so far. Reser reservoir simulation studies have shown that if the Puga field is mapped to a depth of at least 500 meters, it would produce more than 3 MW of electricity.

Cooling improvement of an agricultural greenhouse using geothermal energy in a desert climate

The energy audit is used by Trnsys software to determine the temperature of the cover surface. The thermal insulation inside the greenhouse is investigated using the airflow conservation method. To determine indoor air temperature, natural ventilation of greenhouse and Rayleigh number changes is investigated. In critical climatic conditions, the integration of geothermal energy has shown a significant decrease in indoor temperature and lowering energy levels. To cool the greenhouse at an ambient temperature of 37 °C, the greenhouse needs daily energy of 5 kWh.
