Statistics

Japan has the third largest supply of geothermal resources in the world. Yet, it uses a paltry 2% of this resource.

Iceland has roughly 1/5 of Japan's reserves, but it produces more energy than Japan from geothermal - and uses Japanese made turbines.Mitsubishi Corporation  is the leading producer of geothermal turbines.

Amount of geothermal reserves (installed geothermal capacity as of 2010), by country:

USA: 30,000,000 kilowatt hours (3,093)
Indonesia: 27,790,000 (1,197)  
Japan: 23,470,000 (536)
Philippines: 6,000,000 (1,904)
Mexico: 6,000,000 (958)
Iceland: 5,800,000 (575)
