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
Fluids under high pressure and temperature
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

In our eyes:
It is a great and promising source of energy
It may be one of the most used in the future, because its realiability and availability
It still needs development and investigation
Advantages trump disadvantages by far
