The power of GEOTHERMAL ENERGY
Geothermal power is power generated by geothermal energy. Technologies in use include dry steam power stations, flash steam power stations and binary cycle power stations.
Sustainable Renewable Geothermal power
Prince Piero Ginori Conti tested the first geothermal power generator on 4 July 1904 in Larderello, Italy.
GEA GEOTHERMAL ENERGY ASSOCIATION
In 1958, New Zealand became the second major industrial producer of geothermal electricity Wairakei Station
In 1960 Pacific Gas and Electric Company California
The thermal efficiency of geothermal electric stations is low, around 7-10%, because geothermal fluids are at a low temperature compared with steam from boilers.
The most developed geothermal field is the Geysers in California
