Enhanced Geothermal Systems: Have a Little Faith

Enhanced Geothermal Systems: Have a Little Faith

Widening the Door of Potential Traditional geothermal energy harvesting involves drilling into natural hot pockets of steam and water. These pockets can be difficult to find and locations vary widely, while the power produced depends on their size and temperature. The U.S. currently produces more than 2,800 MW of geothermal energy, about 30 percent of the world’s geothermal energy capacity, which is more than 9,000 MW installed in 24 countries. EGS technology significantly broadens U.S. geothermal potential to a whopping 2,980,295 MW, according to Google.org. This represents a near 40-fold increase compared to traditional geothermal technology potential because EGS taps into heat located under the Earth’s crust that was previously unreachable – it can create power anywhere there is rock that is more than 150 degrees Celsius. Okay, So How Does it Work? The exciting aspect a...
