Development of Geothermal Energy is essential for Indian energy sector
The economic growth in India is opening up great potential for development of renewable resources. Technological advancement in this sector is essential for meeting up with ever increasing energy demand of the country. Geothermal energy has the potential to generate and deliver sustainable supplies of clean, renewable base load.
A number of government and private sector companies are exploring the opportunities to develop this valuable resource. Various geothermal prospects have been identified in Himalayan belt, Cambay basin and Central India. There is an urgent need to develop these identified geothermal prospects. A geothermal seminar will provide an opportunity for companies around the world to contribute towards development of this sector, by providing expertise, equipment, services, finance and operational support for geothermal activities in India.
Keeping this in mind, Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU) is organizing a geothermal seminar- “Geothermal Energy- Initiative and Development” on 26th of July, 2013 for deliberations related to the current issues and challenges in geothermal exploration and development. Government experts, researchers, industry, university representatives and geothermal consultants will share their experiences and information on a wide range of topics related to successful implementation of geothermal power projects. This seminar is aimed at bringing various stakeholders in geothermal sector on one platform and understanding their perspectives for successful growth of this sector.
