Geothermal energy provides that our planet has been created. Geo mean earths heat and thermal means, therefore, the geothermal heat energy coming from the earth, resulting in heat flow from the deeper layers because of magma rock and natural radioactivity.
Uses of geothermal energy: Direct use of heat for industrial purposes or in the known hot springs. Heating and water heating: With the establishment of water networks. This network is also used for heating greenhouses water, even in aquaculture, to keep water from hatcheries at a suitable temperature. Absorption refrigeration: Require a specific computer. Electricity generation: They catch heat and using generators can feed entire cities.
Benefits of geothermal energy: Geothermal energy is always available, no seasonal variations. After an initial investment on infrastructure, represent a major economic and energy savings. Exploiting no sound (produces no noise). By not using tanks or dams, occupies less land. A geothermal power plant takes up less space than a gas or coal. Lower CO2 emissions compared to the production of energy by combustion.
Disadvantages of Geothermal Energy: In some deposits shows hydrogen sulfide, a health hazard and even cause death (in bulk). Impairment of thermal pollution landscape. • Not allowed to be transported.
