The geothermal energy is available 24 hours a day and throughout the year. Geothermal energy is more consistently available than many other forms of electricity, such as wind and solar. Wind and solar energy sources are dependent on a number of factors, such as weather variations, and daily and seasonal fluctuations. Geothermal power plants are characterized by very low outage rates; therefore have high capacity factor. Geothermal power plants are available for electricity generation more than 90% of time for any given time period.

The increased government support for geothermal power projects and stringent environment regulations are the key drivers propelling the growth of the global geothermal power generation market. The rapid depletion of fossil fuels and global warming caused by their usage has shifted the global interest from conventional energy to green energy. The different governments across the globe have initiated several projects and schemes, to promote and encourage the generation of geothermal energy.

Asia-Pacific dominated the global geothermal power market in 2015, and it is anticipated to retain its dominance during the forecast period. The geothermal power market in Asia-Pacific is expected to grow, due to high energy demands in the region and high growth in the geothermal power industry.
