Japan’s Hot Springs Could Be a Significant Source of Geothermal Energy: Filed under: Energy News

However, Japan’s very nature of geological instability (it is a volcanic island chain, after all) might give it an edge in geothermal power. It’s sitting right in the middle of the infamous Ring of Fire , and has oh so many hot springs (no, seriously, you can just go sit in them and everything; the monkeys do it ). Estimates put a total of 23.47 GW of potential geothermal energy in those hot springs (although there are many located in resorts and national parks that are difficult or impossible to exploit, making the usable number somewhat lower).
