GLRPPR Sector Resource: How Geothermal Energy Works

Title:
How Geothermal Energy Works

Abstract:
Heat from the earth can be used as an energy source in many ways, from large and complex power stations to small and relatively simple pumping systems. This heat energy, known as geothermal energy, can be found almost anywhere--as far away as remote deep wells in Indonesia and as close as the dirt in our backyards.
