As geothermal resources are considered renewable and can be used to generate baseload electricity while producing very low levels of Book Edition: 1. Not all geothermal energy comes from power plants. Geothermal heat pumps can do all sorts of things—from heating and cooling homes to warming swimming pools.
These systems transfer heat by pumping water or a refrigerant (a special type of fluid) through pipes just below the Earth's surface, where the temperature is a constant 50 to 60°F. This book, unlike others, examines the geology related to geothermal applications. Geology dictates (a) how geothermal resources can be found, (b) the nature of the geothermal resource (such as liquid- or vapor-dominated) and (c) how the resource might be developed ultimately (such as flash or binary geothermal plants).Cited by: 7.
Geothermal energy, form of energy conversion in which heat energy from within Earth is captured and harnessed for electrical power generation, space heating and cooling, and various direct uses.
