Geothermal Energy | What Types Of Jobs Are Created And Lost From The Use Of Geothermal Energy?

What types of jobs are created and lost from the use of geothermal energy as an alternative energy source?

Several jobs are created from the use of geothermal energy. Among them include: geologists, geographers, engineers, electricians, land surveyors, GIS specialists, lawyers, and even several commercial jobs as there will be lots of small retail businesses along the way. There will be no jobs lost when geothermal energy comes to fruition.


Contractors who do home energy audits and HVAC, experience increases in business, as well as well driller. As far as jobs lost, it would be impossible to say, but one would probably expect that the most expensive energy source (probably oil or electricity, in the U.S.) in each region would suffer losses of revenue, which may or may not cause job loss. Two variables will affect job loss the most:

1) The amount of geothermal installed

2) The amount geothermal reduces demand of other energy sources
