Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy means the generation of energy through the Earth’s internal heat. Heat can be extracted by a variety of methods, but in most cases, water and/or steam will transport geothermal energy to the Earth’s surface. In a geothermal power plant, electricity is generated when geothermal heat produces steam that will spin a turbine that is connected to a generator.
