Geothermal Energy and the Environment

Geothermal energy does little damage to the environment. Another

advantage is that geothermal plants don’t have to transport fuel,

like most power plants. Geothermal plants sit on top of their fuel

source. Geothermal power plants have been built in deserts, in the

middle of crops, and in mountain forests.

Geothermal plants produce almost no e...

ƒ High Temperature Resources: Electricity

Hydrothermal resources at high temperatures (300 to 700 degrees

Fahrenheit) can be used to make electricity.

These high-temperature resources may come from either dry

steam wells or hot water wells. We can use these resources by

drilling wells into the Earth and piping the steam or hot water to

the surface. Geothermal wells are one to two miles deep.

Hydrothermal Resources

There is more than one type of geothermal energy, but only one

kind is widely used to make electricity. It is called hydrothermal

energy. Hydrothermal resources have two common ingredients:

water (hydro) and heat (thermal). Depending on the temperature of

the hydrothermal resource, the heat energy can either be used for

making electricity or for heating.
