Abstract:Geothermal energy has been developed in more than a decade for the multifunctional purpose from direct heat use and electricity power generation. The uses of geothermal heat resources are applied based on the temperature condition. Normally, the high-temperature steam extracted from the reservoir used for powering the power plant to produce electricity. On the other hand low to medium geothermal heat mainly used for direct utilization for agriculture, household, industrial, etc. Developed resources of geothermal energy mainly located in the volcanic area since the conventional technologies are developed to exploiting the heat source from this certain type of geological location, while another advance technology and planning now currently being developed to utilize the geothermal in the different geological area. This research project is intended to delve more into the potential energy resource that can be used from geothermal energy, the technology to exploit the resource, and how the resource can supply which kind of energy for the society and its problems. At the end of this project of research, an expected outcome is a list of key points regarding the application and suitability perspective of geothermal energy to replacing the fossil fuels.
