We are almost ready to launch our updated and extended geothermal power database. Dozens of geothermal experts have already contributed to it. Some were even mentioned in the media, like for example Dr. Azwindini Ernest Tshibalo. The Deputy Director responsible for Curriculum Development and Transformation in the College of Law (CLAW), he will be conducting data research on geothermal energy and contributing to the IGA power database.

Dr. Tshibalo says that the ambassadorship is an honour for him personally and for the university as a whole. “I will be flying the Unisa flag by gleaning power and heat data for the World Geothermal Power and Heat Database on behalf of the IGA. Research data will be analysed by the association to showcase South Africa’s potential in geothermal energy and direct uses.”
