Download Type: Adobe PDF

More than 500 MW of geothermal power capacity (newly installed) was realised in 2013, a 42.3% increase over 2012. This translated to an overall global capacity of approximately 12 GW of geothermal power by the end of 2013.

Unlike solar or wind, the concentration of geothermal energy seems relegated to a few select areas. New Zealand, Turkey, the United States, Kenya, Mexico, the Philippines, Germany, Australia and Italy added the bulk of the new geothermal capacity in 2013. In fact, around 75% of the global geothermal capacity was installed in five of those countries.
