  • 1. Dr. Pri Utami Geothermal Research Centre Faculty of Engineering Gadjah Mada University Jalan Grafika 2, Yogyakarta 55281, Indonesia Geothermal Energy in Indonesia & Western Pacific Region: Scientific and Technological Challenges for Development
  • 2. TALK OUTLINE Introduction to Geothermal Energy High-temperature Geothermal Systems in Western Pacific Region Tectonic settings Natural characteristics Changes in time and space Challenges for Exploration and Development Update on R&D and Capacity Building UGM Milestones
  • 3. What is geothermal ? Heat energy from the Earth Geothermal System A general term that describes natural heat transfer within a confined volume of the Earth's crust where heat is transported from a “heat source” to a “heat sink,” usually the free surface.
  • 4. Worldwide Installed Geothermal Capacity in 2010 (Bertani, 2010)
  • 5. Map of geothermal sites of Indonesia. Total potential of > 20,000 MW (40% of world total potential), scattered in 250 locations
  • 6. The type of geothermal system that is economically most feasible for development in Indonesia is where magmatic intrusions are emplaced high enough in the crust that they induce the convective circulation of groundwater There are other types of geothermal system (a-magmatic) such as those occurring due to heat sweep through deep-reaching fractures, or deep basin brines, but these are too cool, too deep, or too saline to allow the economic generation of electricity at this time in Indonesia
  • 7. Classification of geothermal systems (adapted from Hochstein & Browne 2000 )
  • 8. (Adapted from Corbett & Leach, 1994) Hydrothermal system A type of geothermal system where heat transfers from a heat source (often a cooling pluton) to the surface by “free convection,” involving meteoric fluids with or without traces of magmatic fluids. Liquids discharged at or near the surface are replenished by meteoric water derived from the outside (“recharge”) that is drawn in by the rising fluids.
  • 9. 1. ENVIRONMENT-FRIENDLY Geothermal power generations discharge very significantly much lower pollutant compared to that of fossil fuels. ADVANTAGES OF GEOTHERMAL ENERGY (cyclic, high-temperature, magmatic related systems) CO2 emission (Fridleifsson, 2000) H2S emission (Hunt, 2001)
  • 10. Geothermal fluid whose heat has been extracted is re-injected into the deep reservoir, such that no thermal fluid is let to contaminate the surface/near surface environment.
  • 11. 2. RENEWABLE Its heat source and recharge fluids are both naturally renewed. 3. SUSTAINABLE Geothermal systems are long-lived (Western Pacific: ~300 - 500 ka) and the produced thermal fluids is naturally recharged. There is engineering strategy to ensure their sustainability, i.e., re- injection of the extracted fluids for maintaining the heat and mass balance of the geothermal reservoir.
  • 12. 4. INDIGENEOUS 5. RELIABLE Being renewable, sustainable and indigenous therefore, geothermal energy is reliable, because its supply is INDEPENDENT from season and energy market situation outside the country. Geothermal is an indigeneous energy, meaning that it can only be directly utilized in place, and can not be transported elsewhere before being converted into electricity. Being indigenous energy resource, its development must be prioritized in order to elevate the prosperity to their surrounding community. (Illustration by W. Dimwani, 2001)
  • 13. With the increasing demand of energy in one hand and the shortage of fossil energy resources in another, we are now facing a challenge to the increase utilization of renewable energy, including geothermal, to ensure our energy security. Geothermal energy development requires a continuous effort for ensuring sustainable cultivation of the resource. Consequently, we have to accelerate our human resource capacity building as well as activities in Research and Development (R&D) in geothermal. EXPERTISE MATTERS !
