Geothermal Energy Pros and Cons

Greentumble

Heat that is a great source of thermal energy. Geothermal energy is energy contained beneath Earth’s crust. A connection of the words ‘geo’ and ‘thermal’ simply refer to the origin of this energy, where ‘geo’ stands for earth and ‘thermal’ for heat. What is geothermal energy? Geothermal energy comes in the form of heat produced within the Earth. How is geothermal energy produced? PROS OF GEOTHERMAL ENERGY.

Renewables made up more than half of all new energy sources in 2019

Green Prophet

A solar energy field in Israel called Ashalim. The renewable energy sector added 176 gigawatts (GW) of generating capacity globally in 2019, marginally lower than the (revised) 179 GW added in 2018. However, new renewable power accounted for 72 per cent of all power expansion last year, according to new data released by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). Wind energy expanded by close to 60 GW led by growth in China (26 GW) and the United States (9 GW).

Geothermal energy is gaining popularity in a wide range of countries, from Lithuania to Kenya. This trend is true even in the US, where a California region known as The Geysers is home to the country’s largest geothermal facility. It was the first geothermal power plant in the US, but stopped production after a few years. Geothermal power relies on concepts first tested in Italy in 1904.

How Volcanoes Affect Our Lives

Greentumble

Everyone is familiar with Herculaneum and Pompeii, two cities in Southern Italy which were buried in 79 A.D. Due to their internal heat, volcanoes also provide geothermal energy, a potentially sustainable source to generate electricity. A volcanic environment is characterized by a hydrothermal component, which is a valuable source of geothermal heat. However, much of the thermal energy comes from magma and at present we can only exploit the hydrothermal component.

Free energy under our feet, all you need is water.

Eco Friendly Daily

Geothermal power generating plants, which make use of the planet's interior heat, are becoming increasingly popular around the world. The early use of geothermal was to heat buildings with water that was either already at a usable temperature or needed only minimal extra heating. The optimum way of accessing this energy at the moment is Hot Dry Rock (HDR) or Hot Fractured Rock (HFR) technology. In 2003, geothermal resource supplied 57 000 Gigawatt-hours of electricity.

Fukushima Meltdown Hastens Decline of Nuclear Power

Green Blog

The March 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent Fukushima Daiichi nuclear meltdown shattered public confidence in atomic energy, thus far making it politically impossible to restart any of the reactors taken offline. Now that Tomari 3 is offline, all 44,200 megawatts of Japan’s nuclear capacity that are listed as “operational” by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are in fact idle with no set date for restart.
