Unxepected Discovery Proves Magma More Potent Than Geothermal Reservoirs

Scientific breakthroughs have been known to come by accident, not necessarily after a nice, long study: look at Newton's apple! This is roughly what happened at the Krafla volcano in Iceland: instead of testing geothermal energy harvesting, the team of researchers discovered the amazing power of magma.

Sewage Geothermal Technology Used to Extract Free and “Filthy” Heat in Philadelphia

Wastewater is and will always be warm, and its heat so far has usually been lost, without powering anything (but bacteria). To prevent this...

Greenfire Energy Replaces Water With CO2 for Geothermal Extraction

Greenfire Energy stands to prove us how good projects, as long as they're really good, will stand out and receive funding. This project will get $2 million in funding for replacing water with CO2 in the process of extracting geothermal energy.
