Low temp geothermal: "PureCycle® geothermal power plant at Chena Hot Springs Resort in Alaska was selected as Project of the Year in the renewable/sustainable energy category by Power Engineering magazine.  .. The Chena Hot Springs Resort in Alaska has the first geothermal power plant in the state. It also is the site of the lowest temperature geothermal resource (165°F) ever used for commercial power generation in the world. The resort’s UTC Power PureCycle® geothermal system was commissioned in August and provides power for the resort’s on-site electrical needs. All 44 buildings at the resort – including a greenhouse, hotel, cabins and ice museum – are linked by a geothermal district heating system.More info:  "Although output from the installation is considered small for a base load power plant, the Chena plant represents a huge leap forward for moderate geothermal development and greatly expands the number of geothermal resources that can be economically developed. Prior to the operation of the power plant at Chena, the lowest temperature geothermal resource ever developed for commercial power generation was 208 F."  9:29:11 AM  permalink  

ADB lending for renewables growing:  "A financing facility of US$510 million has been approved to develop renewable energy resources in Pakistan. ADB (Asian Development Bank) will establish the ‘Renewable Energy Development Sector Investment Program’ to expand power supply in rural areas through 600,000 new connections to 4.8 million people. The multitranche financing facility is one of the first to be developed under ADB's evolving clean energy initiative, through which ADB plans to expand operations in developing countries to $1 billion per year.  “Small- to medium-sized hydropower plants offer the greatest renewable energy potential for Pakistan, while possibilities also exist in promoting greater use of wind, solar, and biomass power,” says Piya Abeygunawardena of ADB."  9:17:16 AM  permalink
