Geothermal power generation in the Sustainable Development Scenario, 2000-2030


Tracking progress 2020

Geothermal electricity generation increased by an estimated 3% in 2019, below the average growth of the five previous years. The technology is still not on track to reach the SDS level, which would require a 10% annual increase in generation over 2019-30. Policies tackling challenges associated with pre-development risks are needed to increase the deployment of geothermal resources for power generation.
