Mitsubishi Corp. Units in JV to Develop 15-MW Geothermal Project

Two Mitsubishi Corp. units, Mitsubishi Materials Corp. and Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Co., will set up a 15-megawatt geothermal power plant in northern Japan’s Iwate prefecture.

The plant will be operated as a joint venture between the two companies. Media reports say the plant is expected to start operating in 2022. Mitsubishi Corp. last May announced that is partnering Kyushu Electric Power Co. to conduct surveys on geothermal power in Minamiaso Village, Kumamoto Prefecture in southwestern Japan.

Enel Starts Construction Of Australia’s Largest Solar PV Project

The Bungala Solar One facility is part of the Bungala Solar PV Project and will have an installed capacity of 137.7 MW out of a total of more than 275 MW for the whole project, that will be able to produce 570 GWh per year. The facility will cover an area of approximately 300 hectares and will consist of about 420,000 polycrystalline PV modules mounted on single-axis tracker structures which will follow the Sun’s path from east to west; increasing the amount of energy produced by the plant, compared to PV modules with fixed structures. The overall Bungala Solar PV project is expected to become fully operational in early 2019.

Ministerial Meeting Gathers in Italy To Scale-Up Geothermal Energy Worldwide 

Leaders and ministers from more than 25 governments will meet in Florence, Italy on 11 September, to accelerate the global adoption of geothermal energy. The Global Geothermal Alliance (GGA) meeting is the largest such ministerial gathering dedicated to geothermal energy development. Geothermal energy today accounts for just 0.3 percent of globally installed renewable energy capacity. However – once start-up costs are met – it is one of the lowest-cost and most reliable renewable energy sources available. The global potential for geothermal is estimated to be in the region of 200 GW.
