Japanese geo thermal industry could reach 24 million kilowatts according to report

"By spring 2014, Tsuchiyu, 15 kilometres from Fukushima, will be generating 250 kilowatts of electricity - about a quarter of the city's total needs - at a geothermal plant hidden away in the surrounding mountains....According to one estimate, Japan's geothermal capacity could reach 24 million kilowatts - the third biggest in the world after the US and Indonesia - compared with less than 550,000 kilowatts now.
