AGA white paper on Geothermal Electricity Generation in Australia: Recent Developments and Future Potential, December 2019.
In December 2019, the Australian Geothermal Association released a white paper on Geothermal Electricity Generation in Australia: Recent Developments and Future Potential.
The Paper and two summaries are available from here: one is a general public release and the other is directed to government and regulators.
The white paper addresses the current status and context of geothermal electricity generation in Australia, explores the trends in technology development in Australia and internationally and identifies the potential contribution that geothermally-generated electricity could make to Australia’s energy transition.
It reviews the advantages that geothermal energy offers, outlines the challenges faced by the industry in realising the available potential and recommends some actions that can be taken to address these challenges.
