Geothermal energy is a source of heat energy contained within the earth. The utilization of geothermal energy can be done in two ways, direct use and indirect use. The utilization of geothermal energy directly for non-electric purposes naturally tends to utilize thermal energy on-site rather than converting it into electrical energy. The utilization of geothermal energy directly for non-electric purposes naturally tends to utilize thermal energy on-site rather than converting it into electrical energy. The basis for the analysis of the plan to develop the direct use of geothermal areas and its surroundings is carried out in stages: Formulation of the problem, Formulation of Analysis Assumptions, Data collection, Available Geothermal Source Classification, Classification of Economic Activities, Integration of Available Geothermal Resources and Economic Activities. The analysis is used in the calculation of the energy requirements of the tea drying process in Malabar. Direct utilization of geothermal in the case of the Malabar tea factory is Recommended with Capital Cost of direct geothermal utilization can be paid off within a period of 20 years, then the production cost per year is 7.112 billion / 20 = 355.6 million rupiah.
