    What would we say that the energy generation mix should be for a small country that has potential for geothermal?

    I would say 100% geothermal but there is not enough so only 60% available, I have suggested reducing energy demand as a lot is wasted already.

    Then 25 to 30 % solar PV is their aim and 10 to 15% wind, almost no hydro and I suggested waiting five years for tidal, no real wave potential and even if there was I wouldn't recommend it. No to nuclear as no need of it.

    Bill gates recently wrote something interesting about solar fuel. It sounds logically a good idea. Batteries are not the answer

    Look at Iceland, it has a lot of geothermal energy production. Why aluminium is made there.
