Geothermal energy is a sustainable, renewable, and practically inexhaustible energy source for the United States, potentially providing reliable and flexible electricity generation and satisfying heating and cooling needs, while emitting only small amounts of greenhouse gases. Geothermal resources can be found nationwide, are “always on,” and represent vast domestic energy potential. Only a fraction of this potential has been realized, because of technical and non-technical barriers that constrain industry growth. In this course the various types of geothermal energy systems are described, and the problems that must be solved before these systems can be widely implemented are outlined.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
