This workshop aims to build a pilot project to demonstrate a clean geothermal power solution for off-grid use in the South Pacific. The long term aim is to integrate multiple uses of naturally available geothermal heat for electric power, cooling solutions and providing fresh water and other direct heat uses to local communities. The workshop is taking place in Savusavu, Vanu Levu between the 25.09 to 29.09. 2016. Following by a three days field trip in Vanua Levu, which is the second biggest island of the Fiji archipelago and features the main manifestations of geothermal hot spring activity.The geothermal potential of the island has been estimated high enough to provide clean power for the two main islands. There is, however, no geothermal plant operating to date.
The field trip in Vanua Levu will be done by bus.
