What is Geothermal Energy?

Takes advantage of the heat stored undergroud

Clean, efficient and renewable way of obtaining energy

It does not produce noise pollution (or almost any other kind)

It is a highly reliable source

How does it work?

Geothermal energy plant

Production Well

Fluids under high pressure and temperature

Returning fluids

According to UVa, geothermal energy could quintuple the energy produced nowadays in Spain. This would be aroud 700GW.

However, we still do not have even a single geothermal power plant in Spain
