Geothermal Power



This energy comes from the heat that it is inside the earth because the disintegration of radioactive elements, the heat generated when the planet was formed and the solar energy absorbed by its crust. We notice this energy  with the volcano eruptions, geysers and with thermal waters. The planet zones were there are such phenomenon are called geothermic regions.

We can use it to:

            a) Heat and Cool: that is directly to heat water, or to household heating systems, using solar panels and heat pumps,

            b) Generate Electricity:  thermal waters close to the geothermic regions are needed in order to obtain the energy. The crust is drilled to obtain water vapour whose pressure moves the electricity generator.
