What is the positive and negative effects of geothermal energy?

14 COMMENTS

  1. The positive is a clean renewable resource for energy
    The negative is there are only a few places where geothermal can be used and they are often in remote areas. Their construction negatively effects the usually lush enviroment surrounding them.

  2. The positive is that the energy produces low emission renewable power. Additionally, universally applied, it could end world power shortages and reverse the greenhouse effect.
    The downside is that some of the methods used to access the heat are very expensive. So called “hot rocks” technology involves drilling through the earths crust, tapping the heat, pumping in water, then extracting the steam.
    The process is complex and expensive, but also largely environmentally friendly.
    Australia is very interested in Geothermal energy. Check the following link: http://www.pir.sa.gov.au/geothermal
