“We have subsidized oil companies for a century. That’s long enough,” the president said. “It’s time to end the taxpayer giveaways to an industry that’s rarely been more profitable, and double-down on a clean energy industry that’s never been more promising. Pass clean energy tax credits and create these jobs.”Mentioning natural gas, wind and solar specifically, Obama called for using various types of renewable energy solutions to make the country less dependent on oil alone. “This country needs an all-out, all-of-the-above strategy that develops every available source of American energy – a strategy that’s cleaner, cheaper, and full of new jobs,” he said.
“We were finally awarded a service contract in Chile called Newen which we applied for in 2009,” Mr. Tantoco said, explaining that the firm will now develop the steam field potential and will eventually build a power plant.EDC had set up a subsidiary in Chile called EDC Chile Limitada to bid for geothermal concessions in the country. The company is currently undertaking geological surveys in the area.

“Geothermal continues to be on the agenda for the Nevis Island Administration, and this natural energy source will be pursued vigorously as an alternative to fossil fuel,” he said. “We will continue to work steadfastly on the [geothermal] project, and it is important to note that the region is very interested in Nevis getting the energy.”

"We think there's certainly the resource that could underpin several hundred megawatts of geothermal power and that's really needed in the mid-west because if you look at the magnetite developers, Asia Iron, Karara, etcetera ... they're going to need several hundred megawatts of baseload power in the next few years and we think we're well placed to supply that," he said.

Geothermal energy developers plan to pump 24 million gallons of water into the side of the dormant Central Oregon volcano during summer 2012 to demonstrate a new technology they hope will produce inexpensive power.

"An action plan to know the geothermal potential of the state will be prepared soon," an official statement quoting Dhumal said.
