Geothermal energy facts

Geothermal drive is strength generated by emotionalism stored beneath the Connective's appear.

Geothermal vim is oftentimes referred to as geothermal nation.

Geothermal spirit supplies inferior than 10 % of the humans's force.

Geothermal energy is clean and safe for the surrounding environment.

Geothermal energy is sustainable because hot water can be re-injected into the ground.

Geothermal energy is extremely price competitive in suitable areas.

Geothermal energy suitable areas aren't widely spread.

Geothermal energy is main energy source in Iceland.

Geothermal energy is very important energy source in volcanically active places such as new Zealand and Iceland.

Geothermal energy can be found in the form of volcanoes, hot springs and geysers.

Geothermal energy has three main uses: Heating, Electricity generation and Geothermal heat pumps.

Geothermal energy is used since ancient times in form of hot water.

Geothermal energy exploit uses three basic types of geothermal power plants: Dry steam, Flash steam and Binary power plant.

Geothermal energy use has very low emissions of greenhouse gases to about three percent of the carbon dioxide emissions of a fossil power station.

Geothermal energy is widely used in California with more than 30 geothermal power plants that are producing more than 90 % of the geothermal electricity in the USA.

Geothermal energy's amount of electricity is less than 1 percent of total electricity produced in the USA.

Geothermal energy is also widely used in the state of Nevada.

Geothermal energy got its name from Greek words: geo (earth) and therme (heat), and therefore geothermal energy is in fact Earth's heat..

Geothermal energy has minimum negative environmental impact.

Geothermal energy widely exploited in Iceland, New Zealand, Japan, Italy, Philippines and in USA mostly in California and Nevada.

Geothermal energy is taken from Earth with the help of geothermal heat pumps.

Geothermal energy can be easily found and exploited along the "Ring of Fire" region.

Geothermal energy is extremely efficient (almost 100 %) energy source where only real source of losing energy is from turbine friction.

Geothermal energy has only one real problem and that is lack of easily accessible sites.

Geothermal energy's advantage is also the fact that geothermal power plants run continuously day and night with an uptime typically exceeding 95%.

Geothermal energy's advantage is also the fact that geothermal power stations are relatively small, and have a lesser impact on the environment than for instance hydroelectric plants.
