					Geothermal Power Market in Americas to 2020 - High Potential along with Favorable
Policies Propelling The US Market

The Central America Geothermal Industry is Going to Tap into its Huge Geothermal
Potential

Central America has huge potential for geothermal power generation. But only a few
Central American countries, such as Mexico, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and
Guatemala, are currently harnessing geothermal power. With increasing emphasis on
renewable sources for power generation around the world, and focus on gaining energy
independence, many of these countries have started projects to develop geothermal
resources. In addition, many other countries not producing geothermal power are
investing in the development of geothermal resources.

The US dominates the global geothermal market as well as the Americas market. The
United States Department of Energy (DOE) is very actively promoting renewable and
geothermal energy production in the country. Many policies and tax incentives are being
devised to support geothermal developmental projects. The US government has also
provided a stimulus funding of $338m for the development of geothermal projects under
its Geothermal Development Program (GTP).

The US currently has many geothermal projects either under construction or in the
planning phase. The capacity that is under development is more than the current total
capacity of the entire Americas. It has more than 100 projects in the pipeline, which
would add more than 7,000 MW of capacity.

It is estimated that the cumulative installed capacity for geothermal power of U.S. would
grow from 3,153 MW in 2009 to 11,693 m in 2020 growing at a CAGR of 12.7%. And
the power generation would grow from 19,610 GWh in 2009 to 69,690 GWh in 2020
growing at a CAGR of 12.2%.
