The earth has enough geothermal energy to supply twice over the world’s total electrical needs.

According to the MIT Technology Review, the earth has enough geothermal energy to supply twice over the world’s total electrical needs. Unfortunately, the geothermal power is used to generate only about 0.3% of the worldwide electricity generation. Until now, almost all geothermal energy has gone unused. It’s the high time we think about utilizing the …

How Geothermal energy can be used to produce electricity?

Geothermal energy can be used to produce electricity by pumping cold water at high pressure into an injection well and extracting hot water, then passing through a heat exchanger. The rest is history. A must-read article by BBC Science Focus Magazine where electricity production using geothermal energy is explained relatively simple terms. https://www.sciencefocus.com/science/how-does-geothermal-energy-work-to-produce-electricity/
