What do you think of when you think of Geothermal Power?

What do you think of when you think of Geothermal Power? | World Geothermal Markets | Scoop.it
Do you think baseload? Or do you just think of central heating? I am genuinely a fan of myths, superstitions and suppositions being debunked. In fact I think my favourite word of the French language is probably ‘désaveu’.

Jonathan Geothermal's curator insight, August 23, 2013 6:38 AM

Coal really is on its way out, and I don't mind betting the Geysers will still be puffing away when the last great American coal railway is shut down for good and turned into an attraction. But why don’t people think of geothermal? Media, bloggers, even renewable energy advocates routinely omit the technology from discussions and news.

Gigawatt growth opportunities worth millions of dollars in the geothermal industry

GPC Jo's insight:

Geothermal is booming with opportunities across the globe to secure clean, baseload, sustainable power for generations to come. In 2013, developers have been working across the globe in South East Asia, Latin America, East Africa and Europe to take advantage of the heat beneath our feet.

 

In Europe, heating projects have gone from strength to strength and are helping governments and municipalities to reduce carbon emissions and provide cleaner sources of heating or cooling. 

 

Gigawatts are still available, though and millions of dollars worth of opportunities are sitting on the table. More reliable than wind or solar, a good source of baseload power and almost free after the initial capital expenditure, governments around the world are starting to sit up and take note of geothermal.
