• Geothermal Energy is basically the utilization of subsurface steam to generate electricity. Steam, produced from subsurface hot water, is used to rotate turbines, which in turn start the generator, producing electricity.
  • There are two types of geothermal systems:
    • Conventional Geothermal Systems: These occur naturally in the subsurface, but are limited in number, since not all geographies hold trapped heat and fluids.
    • Enhanced Geothermal Systems: These are man-made geothermal reservoirs, and they can be designed in areas where they otherwise would not occur, thus making geothermal power more widespread, worldwide.
  • Geothermal energy is a part of the solution addressing climate change, and demand for geothermal power is on the rise, worldwide.
  • It is a cost-effective renewable energy source, as sometimes existing oil and gas wells and infrastructures can be configured for this purpose, saving cost.
