Union of the Comoros: Potential for 40-45 MW Geothermal Energy Capacity at Karthala

Comoros: Karthala Geothermal Project looks promising (ESI Africa)

A recent study has concluded that the Karthala Geothermal Project on the Comoros Islands off the coast of Africa, presents favourable conditions of the exploitation of high-temperature geothermal energy to power generation.

Studies imply a potential for 40-45 MW electricity generation capacity, Think Geoenergy reported. From the Karthala volcano, the country benefits exploitable geothermal resources for electricity generation, media reported.

Not only did the study confirm the commercial opportunities of the untapped thermal resource, it highlighted the significant impact it would have on driving economic growth and development.
