Science & Technology: Small-Scale Geothermal Energy for Remote Communities

Off-grid renewable electricity production with MiniGeo (IF Technology)

As part of the Geothermal Capacity Building - Indonesia-Netherlands GEOCAP program we developed a small-scale geothermal power plant specifically for remote communities. We call this system MiniGeo. The goal is to provide an alternative to diesel generators which are both expensive as well as polluting. To prove the viability of the MiniGeo concept we are now working towards a first pilot project on Haruku, a small island in the Eastern part of Indonesia. This is a summary of what we are doing and why it matters.
