Energy Produced from Geothermal Sources to See Significant Increases by 2020

Currently, the United States generate about 3.1 gigawatts of electricity from geothermal systems. On the other hand, as the report claims, 88 percent of the world's geothermal energy systems currently in operation are used in just 8 countries.

Company Uses Stored CO2 to Harvest Geothermal Power

At the American Geophysical Union meeting on Friday, December 13, scientists from Ohio State University, University of Minnesota, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL),...

Geothermal power – hot energy right under our feet

Converting geothermal heat into electricity by pouring water onto hot rocks underground and using the steam to turn turbines is arguably the most promising - and renewable - source of "green" energy on the planet. So concludes the MIT experts' report, released on Monday, which examines what geothermal energy could do for the US in the 21st century.

Unused Old Mines Could Be Used as Geothermal Power Sources

Geothermal energy has a lot of potential worldwide. As it is not dependent on many factors, geothermal energy could be the cleanest power source of near future. Two scientists from University of Oviedo, Spain, have concluded that geothermal energy could be provided by mine shafts.

Turkish Company Begins Exploitation of 60MW Geothermal Field

The group already owns a 17.4 MW plant on a field where it has operating rights since September last year, so this new geothermal field can bring them a total of 77.4MW of power.

New Report Says Nevada Has Most Geothermal Power Plants

One source of alternative energy the world is not really aware of is the geothermal one: large quantities of hot water, whose energy can be turned into electricity â€Ã¢â‚¬Å“ much like underground jacuzzis.

Central America's Plans to Extract Geothermal Energy From Its Unique Volcanoes

eing gifted with many active volcanoes, Central America wants to tap them for producing green energy which will cut its dependence on oil imports and also help reduce the CO2 emissions.

Michael Strizki`s Solar/Hydrogen/Geothermal Powered House – Amazing!

Michael Strizki's house is the most low impact house I've ever seen. He lives his life off-grid, because his home system feature solar panels, 10 hydrogen tanks filled with the excess energy from the solar panels, with the hydrogen taken out of water, and a 15 year-old geothermal system, that covered its price 8 times since it was installed.

Only 2% of US Geothermal Energy Needed to Supply 2500x Power Demand

Unlike solar and wind powers, geothermal power is cost-effective and a reliable source, 24/7 whole year round at a consistent and predictable rate. What’s...

Geothermal Efficiency Boosted Up to 30% by Newly Discovered Liquid

Scientists from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, WA, announce they developed a new type of heat extracting liquid that could absorb much better the heat coming from the hot water in the geothermal wells.
