Geothermal energy: An emerging major resource

The earths heat is a potentially valuable if unconventional source of energy. In the opinion of the university scientists and industrial engineers who have been examining its possibilities, this beat could be used to generate substantial amounts of electricity in the near future; geothermal resources, they believe, are large and can be readily exploited. Three types of resources are being considered, steam, hot water, and hot rock. For more information on this resource, please see the link provided.
