U.S. Geothermal Energy

Renewable energy development aims not only to care for the environment, but also the replacement of a nonrenewable resource such as fossil fuels, which in a indefinite period (and not so far) will be exhausted or will have a greater demand the amount harvested, so that one of the various ways to replace it with geothermal energy.

Geothermal energy

On this occasion, we discuss how to prepare the country for U.S. exploitation of this energy source, with the promise that in the not too distant future, be able to replace coal as much as 10 times the performance, and of course, far less polluting .

The first step has been undertaken for such production began with the development of so-called Geothermal Energy Map, which is already available to access Google Earth (clicking through this link) and displays perfectly the resource variables geothermal distributed throughout the United States.

This had been a pilot with the launch last year of a map of geothermal energy to West Virginia, in addition to planning the development of sources of abstraction and a progressive replacement of thermal power plants that dominate the energy production in the area .
What is Geothermal Energy?

For those who do not know what it's about geothermal energy, then we leave some videos describing seek to clarify all your doubts:
