I am supervising the work of geothermal fields in Peninsular India for last three years. Till date, most of the area has been covered by monitoring. The west coast geothermal field covering over an area of 300 km long and 50-60 km wide stretch will covered during field season year 2016-17. Until, Manuguru geothermal field in Telangana state, Athamalik and Tarabalo geothermal fields in Odisha, Bakreshawar geothermal field in West Bengal, Bara Palasi, Tantloi, Thatha, Surajkund and Baval Durai geothermal fields in Jharkhand, Unapdeo-Nazadeo, Indwe-Ratanpura and Ganeshpuri geothermal fields are suitable for taking geothermal exploration. Each field will take five to years to assess the geothermal energy for power generation and other ancillary uses. The geothermal field situation entirely different from China as equalised by previous worker. I support the Government of India view for generating power at least some MW by 2020 but systematic investigation is required to make systematic available for user agency. Government departments like GSI, NGRI and BARC are capable of generating such data by using experience man powers.
