Geothermal Power Plant Installation in Pakistan; Choice of Location, Inspecting its Potential and Utilization


Objectives: The main emphasize is to locate the high potential gradient range (HPGR) for geothermal energy in Pakistan. Methods/Statistical Analysis: An engineering overview and analysis is mentioned for the installation of Geothermal Power Plant (GPP). It includes the hypothetical estimation for the HPGR geothermal energy to extract the amount of electrical power. These are obtained from North-Eastern region of China’s geothermal energy fields. A comparison method technique is utilized to justify the geothermal fields of HPGR in Pakistan. Findings: The hot and dry rocks are the area of concern to build GPP technology of two phase binary cycle system. The preliminary estimation of working energy leads to the forecasting of the electric potential sites. A regressive result is determined for the power and energy in the forecast of 30 years for suitability; where energy efficiency, electrical power, production temperature, and heat extraction rates behaviors are found on the basis of 5 years preliminary data. The sole purpose is to utilize a green energy to meet the demand of energy crises in Pakistan. Application/Improvements: The alternate and renewable geothermal energy resource is in consideration for the generation of electricity. GPP installation is considered to be an inception for Pakistan and the ease in implementation will be provided by the Pak-China Economic Corridor, section of the Energy Sector Renewable Energy Projects. It will add up plentiful electrical power to the grids for use of commercial and non-commercial.
