Geothermal Generation Report;2007, Vol. 4, p51
Market Research Report
The article provides an overview on the developments of geothermal power resources in Asia in 2005. In Indonesia, development of geothermal potential has proceeded very slowly and over a span of 20 years it only developed 797 megawatts (MW) of geothermal power. Meanwhile, the Philippines' geothermal capacity has reached 1,930 MW by the end of the year. In Mongolia, National Sanatoriums have been constructed, which directly use thermal waters from shallow wells.
