What are the main advantage of using geothermal energy to produce electricity?
Geothermal energy uses no fuel. Its most important waste is greenhouse gasses leaked from underground, so it is relatively free from pollution.
Geothermal energy is considered a renewable energy source. Which means that, unlike the fossil fuels we rely on for energy, we can continue to use geothermal without having to be concerned that we will run out of energy. In terms of electricity generation, a geothermal power plant will emit only about 1% of the carbon dioxide that a fossil fuel powered plant would produce to generate the same amount of electricity. Although this may not…
Geothermal energy plants use the natural heat (which is thermal energy) of the earth. Water turned into steam is used to turn steam turbines. This is a conversion of the thermal energy into mechanical energy. The mechanical energy of the turbine is coupled to a generator, and is converted there into electricity, which is electromagnetic energy.
Geothermal Energy is definitely environmentally friendly . It uses the heat from the origin of the planet, radioactive decay of minerals and solar energy absorbed by the surface. Although it does not produce a lot of electricity and it is costs a lot, but it is definitely enviromentally friendly. geothermal energy can be used for many diffrent things for example heat energy and is a good electricity conductor
