The development of geothermal energy in the far East

The holding "Rosgeologiya" offers a complex of geological-geophysical evaluation of the potential of deposits of water mixture to Banska geothermal area, located in the Ust-Bolsheretsky district, about 60 km West of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

"Generation of electricity from geothermal area will contribute to the development of the region, will significantly reduce the cost per kilowatt-hour and thus will enable the development of infrastructure and the development of the next Karymshinskie mining site of gold-silver formation, — the chief of Department of science, JSC "Rosgeologiya" albert Iskhakov. — At the moment the high cost of electricity generation from imported diesel fuel makes the development of low-profitable fields".

Predlojeniya received the support of the government of Kamchatskiy Krai. The decision on joint work aimed at the inclusion of the project in the list of objects offered for geological study at the expense of the Federal budget in 2018. A letter of petition will be sent to the Ministry of natural resources and ecology of the Russian Federation in the near future.

Geothermal energy derived from heat generated in the Earth's crust, occupies a significant place in the strategy of energy supply of several countries and has high prospects for the use in the Russian Federation. Kamchatka Krai has a high resource potential for this type of energy. Practical inexhaustibility, the possibility of a permanent year-round use and the ability of substitution of significant amounts of traditional energy sources (coal, oil, gas) make this a promising area from the point of view of ensuring the future energy security of the country. published
