In the renewable energy sector, solar and wind power have received the most attention, for good reasons. But activity is on the rise in another resource area, geothermal energy. The global market for geothermal power is growing rapidly, according to a recent report from the Geothermal Energy Association. The report identifies over 700 projects moving forward in 70 countries, with 11,766 megawatts of new capacity in the early stages of development or under construction. By the end of this year, the global geothermal market is expected to operate 12,000 megawatts of capacity online.
