Geothermal Installation energy—energy derived from the earth’s heat—can be used as a renewable energy source as well as directly for heating and cooling applications. The Department of Energy (DOE) funds geothermal Installation research and development (R&D) to help stimulate industry growth and encourage the rapid adoption of geothermal Installation technologies sought by the public and private sectors.
Here are some interesting facts about geothermal installation energy:-
1. Baseload energy is always present:
Geothermal Installation power plants generate electricity continuously, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The power output of a geothermal Installation power plant is highly predictable and stable, allowing for precise energy planning. Geothermal Installation power plants are also an excellent way to meet baseload energy demand or the minimum level of demand on an electrical grid over a 24-hour period.
2. Energy from geothermal installations can be used to heat, cool, and generate electricity:
Geothermal Installation energy can be used to heat, cool, and generate electricity, depending on the resource and technology used—heating and cooling buildings with geothermal installation heat pumps, generating electricity with geothermal installation power plants, and heating structures with direct-use applications.
3. Geothermal installation may be more accessible than you think:
The Geothermal Installation Technologies Office is funding research to find ways to tap into geothermal installation resources across the country. Geothermal Installation resources have traditionally been most accessible in the western states, from Colorado and New Mexico up to Utah, Nevada, Idaho, and Oregon. However, with the advancement of enhanced geothermal Installation systems (EGS) technologies and additional research into deep direct-use (DDU) capabilities, geothermal Installation energy may become available across the country.
With the advancement of EGS technologies, there could be over 100 GW of geothermal installation energy available. Furthermore, on a large scale, DDU applications have the potential to replace or develop new district heating and cooling systems in hotels, office buildings, hospital complexes, military installations, and other large energy end-users, as well as expand geothermal as a renewable thermal energy source in large portions.
