The global geothermal industry surpassed 12,000 MW of geothermal power operational, with about 600 MW of new geothermal power coming online globally, according to a year-end update by the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA). The international geothermal power industry is poised to place between 500 and 1,000 MW on line per year for the rest of the decade, said GEA. In Nevada, NV Energy is looking to replace coal plants with 300 MW of renewable energy, including geothermal.
