The further you travel toward the Earth’s core, the hotter it gets. Geothermal power generation passes hot water through an exchanger. This creates steam and drives a turbine to produce power.
If you’ve ever soaked in a hot spring, you’ve experienced geothermal energy.
Geothermal energy used the earth’s heated core to produce power.
Geothermal energy is a very reliable source of energy.
Geothermal is an expensive power source. This is because drilling and research is needed to create it.
This renewable energy source comes straight from the earth. It causes no emissions and has a small environmental footprint.
We have a geothermal resource 3 km under the earth’s surface.
We're looking into how we can use geothermal as a supply option in the future.
