Westford, USA, Feb. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Several factors drive Europe’s leadership in the geothermal drilling market. One of the primary factors is the increasing energy demand, as Europe seeks to meet its energy needs sustainably while reducing emissions. It has led to a greater focus on efficient resource utilization, which geothermal energy provides. In addition, increasing initiatives undertaken by governments, such as financial benefits and tax refunds to promote sustainable energy production, are anticipated to create a favorable environment for growth in the geothermal energy market globally. Finally, increasing geothermal energy adoption for small-scale thermal applications is also a vital driver of the market’s growth.

According to SkyQuest, the geothermal power industry in the United States witnessing steady growth over the years, with a total capacity of 2,634 MW of geothermal power plant capacity currently in operation. Out of this full capacity, the majority, 1,927 MW, is generated from steam-powered plants, while the rest is from binary cycle-powered plants. However, a significant shift is happening in the industry, as geothermal power technology is moving away from steam and towards binary-cycle power.

Binary Plants Segment to Witness Higher Traction Thanks to Major Technological Breakthroughs

The binary plants segment of the geothermal drilling market accounted for the largest share in 2022. This growth is being driven by the increasing demand for more efficient and sustainable methods of energy production, particularly in the field of electricity generation. Binary power plants use a unique technology that involves a heat exchanger processing a backup fluid with a very low boiling point and a relatively warm geothermal fluid. The heat vaporizes the backup fluid from the geothermal fluid, which then powers turbines to produce electricity.

The geothermal drilling market in Europe experienced the largest market share in 2021 and is projected to continue to generate the largest market growth during the projection timeframe. This growth is estimated to be around 38% and is driven by various factors, including the region’s significant investment in renewable energy sources, particularly in small-scale thermal applications. Europe emerges as the home to some of the most active geothermal energy users, with businesses and governments investing heavily in geothermal technology to reduce their reliance on non-renewable energy sources.
