There are now about 400 geothermal power plants in 22 countries around the world. The United States, the Philippines, Italy, Mexico, Indonesia, Japan, New Zealand, and Iceland are the largest producers of geothermal energy.
Asked in Geothermal
How is geothermal energy made into energy?
Power plants produce geothermal energy by utilizing geothermal dry steam or geothermal hot water accessed by digging wells. Dry steam or hot water is brought to the surface through pipes and processed into electricity in the power plant. There are three different ways that power plants process geothermal energy. The three different methods are dry steam, flash steam and binary-cycle. All three methods use steam to power a turbine which drives a generator that produces electricity. • Dry steam geothermal power plants use...

What is the importance of air to plants?
Power plant A means for converting stored energy into work. Stationary power plants such as electric generating stations are located near sources of stored energy, such as coal fields or river dams, or are located near the places where the work is to be performed, as in cities or industrial sites. Mobile power plants for transportation service are located in vehicles, as the gasoline engines in automobiles and diesel locomotives for railroads. Power plants range in capacity from a fraction of a http://www.answers.com/topic/horsepower (hp)...

How did fosil fuels begin with energy from the sun?
Because sunlight allowed plants to grow, which made it possible for animals to eat the plants. Eventually the plants got turned into fossil fuels. Apart from geothermal and nuclear energy all energy sources on earth originated with sunlight. ...
Asked in Geothermal
How is geothermal energy made and generated?
A regular power station is built. Two shafts are drilled down into the earth to the hot rocks. Water is cycled through the shafts and the steam created spins electricity turbines. The power station has no harmful carbon dioxide emissions. A: Geothermal Energy is made in all diiferent countries. They need to be in volcanic environments that have Geysers and/or Hot Springs. Type in Google Pacific Ring Of Fire +Geothermal. There are a lot of sites. Geothermal energy uses heat or steam from the...
Asked in Nuclear Energy, Wind Power
Difference between captive power plant and independent power producer?
When there is a huge demand of power and people feel generating electricity is cheaper than purchasing it, Captive power plants are made. Excess generation of CPP can be sold through grid. On the other hand Independent power plants are made for supplying to grid only. ...

No, and since all nuclear plants have to be licensed it is not likely
Asked in Environmental Issues
What are 5 energy sources that do not produce carbon dioxide?
solar power nuclear power wind power geothermal power wave power tidal power however these are not completely free of producing carbon dioxide, an example is the wind turbines. they are made of steel which produces carbon dioxide, therefore the making of the wind turbine produces carbon dioxide. ...
Asked in Renewable Energy
How is geothermal energy renewable?
Geothermal energy is completely renewable, because it is made from steam pretty much. We get it from within the Earth, so as long as the Earth is around, geothermal energy will be available. So geothermal energy is a renewable resource, meaning it will not run out or take a very long time to. It is made in the Earth's interior, the steam can be produced continuously, and because when the water is used it goes back and gets used again. ...
