Ladakh: Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) on Monday said that it will implement India’s first geothermal field development project in Ladakh that will use the heat generated by the Earth’s core to generate clean energy.

“Geothermal resource development can revolutionise farming in Ladakh, which is now totally dependent for supply of fresh vegetables, fruits from outside the UT,” ONGC said.

This project of ONGC will put India on geothermal power map of the world. Geothermal energy is clean and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Geothermal power plants have average availabilities of 90 per cent or higher, compared with about 75 per cent for coal plants.
