Geothermal Energy | Geothermal Energy Is Often The Great Hope Of Renewable Energy As It Can Be Continuously And Reliably Produced?

Geothermal energy is often the great hope of renewable energy as it can be continuously and reliably produced 24/7. While it it has the best potential, it is very limited geographically. The best geothermal resources are in Alaska and California, and the best potential resources are west of the Rockies. How do we overcome the geographic limitations of geothermal energy?


The simple answer to your question is: ‘dig deeper in the ground.’ There are several companies out there at present that are willing to install geothermal energy suppies into the home. I live in England and I have had pumps installed in my gym. I save hundreds of pounds each year in electricity bills. Unfortunately I can only source my knowledge onto the e-book that I purchased but if you have any more questions about this please email me and I will answer the question to the best of my ability. Hope this helps.

Just like now, transmission lines.

Geothermal potential is not limited geographically; its limited economically to certain geographical regions. Some spots are cheaper to drill than others. Some rocks are hard, others soft; some hot spots are shallow and some are deep. It would be pretty easy in Hawaii 🙂

There are also aquifers and politics that get in the way, but the potential exists anywhere on the planet. Here is some more info:
