    Geothermal Energy In today's world, we are stuck in a constant debate about efficient energy usage and production. Many have gone to alternative fuel sources do to the rising cost of fossil fuels and the environmental damage caused by the burning of fossil fuels. One option that goes largely unexplored is geothermal energy. Geothermal energy is not only a much more environmentally-friendly power source than fossil fuels, but the cost of installation is not significantly more expensive than the installation

    Geothermal energy is the heat from the Earth. It's clean and sustainable. Resources of geothermal energy range from the shallow ground to hot water and hot rock found a few miles beneath the Earth's surface, and down even deeper to the extremely high temperatures of molten rock called magma. We can also use geothermal energy to make electricity. A geothermal power plant works by tapping into steam or hot water reservoirs underground; the heat is used to drive an electrical generator. Most geothermal

    increase renewable energy to provide better resources to replace fossil fuels to reduce carbon footprints. The earth is a great source of natural energy therefore thermal energy is one of the most abundant resources. There are many types of renewable energy, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. Geothermal heat renewable energy converts natural heat into electricity resources. Geothermal energy represents the inner heat of the earth’s core. Geothermal energy is mainly produced

    times more energy than all the oil and natural gas resources in the world. The areas with the highest underground temperatures are in regions with active or geologically young volcanoes. These "hot spots" occur at tectonic plate boundaries or at places where the crust is thin enough to let the heat through. There is some research that indicates that the steam removal and water return associated with geothermal plants can trigger minor tectonic events. The International Geothermal Association

    Geothermal Energy Concern over the end of nonrenewable resources has increasingly grown in the population over the recent decades. Hydrocarbons, specifically oil and gas, are being depleted rapidly. According to, only 1.3 trillion barrels of attainable oil remain. At the current rates of consumption, that equivocates to around 2055 when oil should just about be depleted. (, 2014) Recent advances in oilfield technology continue to push back the date of annihilation of these resources
