Handbook of Best Practices for Geothermal Drilling. John Finger and Doug Blankenship. Prepared by Sandia National Laboratories Albuquerque, New Mexico and Livermore, California Sandia National Laboratories is a multi-program laboratory managed and operated by . Geothermal energy is thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth. Thermal energy is the energy that determines the temperature of matter. The geothermal energy of the Earth's crust originates from the original formation of the planet and from radioactive decay of materials (in currently uncertain  but possibly roughly equal [2.
The heat energy contained below the earth’s surface is about billion times more than current world energy consumption. Geothermal power—literally “earth heat”—taps into underground reservoirs of steamy hot water, which can be piped to the surface to drive turbines that produce electricity. This book addresses the societal aspects of harnessing geothermal resources for different uses, such as power production, heating, cooling. It introduces a theoretical framework for a social scientific approach to the field. It presents a collection of empirical case studies on geothermal energy.
Oct 31, · Geothermal energy is heat within the earth. The word geothermal comes from the Greek words geo (earth) and therme (heat). Geothermal energy is a renewable energy source because heat is continuously produced inside the earth. People use geothermal heat for bathing, to heat buildings, and to generate electricity. Geothermal Energy is a peer-reviewed fully open access journal published under the SpringerOpen brand. It focuses on fundamental and applied research needed to deploy technologies for developing and integrating geothermal energy as one key element in the future energy portfolio.
