Google is Now America's Largest Investor In Geothermal Research

Geothermal power is getting a closer look from several directions. These new studies are based on "hot rocks" at temperatures of cheap prescription propecia around 150 degrees C (about 300 degrees F) that can be reached by drilling a couple of miles into the earth's crust. This is a much more involved approach than dealing with surface or near-surface geothermal activity, as is used for much of Iceland's power generation.

Google, which has an interest in affordable power to run its growing numbers of server farms, is heavily investing (through Google.org) in research into the development of geothermal power. In the US, Google is the largest funding source for geothermal research.

At the same time, the Australian government is online viagra prescriptions investing nearly four times as much as Google to develop geothermal power for Australia. "An Australian Geothermal Energy Association report this week forecast it could potentially produce 2,200 megawatts of baseload power by 2020, adding that represented up to infopharm.com 40 percent of Australia's 2020 renewable energy target."

MIT scientists estimate that the US could develop 100 gigawatts of 50 mg cialis dose generating capacity from geothermal over the next 40 years at a cost of US$1 billion. The Australians' timetable is much more aggressive, and comes with a higher price tag. "The association estimated A$12 billion would need to be invested to develop the 2,200 megawatts of power, but added the cost of generating electricity would fall to acceptable levels by the wow it's great viagra soft tabs 100 mg time commercial projects were up and buy tramadol hydrochloride running."

The amount of energy that could be generated from geothermal power is potentially huge. The Australian group estimates that just 1 percent of the country's geothermal capacity could provide 26,000 years worth of clean electricity.

Of course Google is America's biggest investor in geothermal research... is there any other conglomerate investing in this kind of research ?
Let me hear you say "google monopolisation" b a n a n a s.

Google's like China: investing for futur
written by Corban, August 31, 2008
Google's DCs gobble tons of energy, and so anything which has to potential to cialis super active generate electricity off the grid would benefit them immensely. They have the scale to make full use of name brand cialis a geothermal plant.

Given the get viagra prescription rise in energy prices this year, this could be an insulating move by them.

"What is googles return on this investment?"

I hope Google's return is enormous. Many times greater than what they've made as a search engine company.

Enormous return will come only if this technology brings us loads of inexpensive electricity. No more oil, no more coal, no more nuclear. Just priced out of the market by something less expensive.

And that's a good thing.

This has more to do with the US's pathetic investment record on Geothermal than Google's stellar record.

Infact in 2007/2008, US DOE wanted to give $0.00 for Geothermal research.

Just in general, Solar and Geothermal both hardly get anything from the Fed.

why google is investing
written by home insurance, August 31, 2008
heres a short list as to why:

barrier to entry is too costly for others, but return = good

runs night and day (not like solar/water/wind

0 footprint. not true with other technologies

uses no surface area - not true with others

very long term source - 1% = 25,000 years

available to setup anywhere in world

clean

will help stop volcanoes around the world as magma cools over next 10,000 years. hawaii becomes hotter real estate than ever. - haha

Google has the money to invest in risky technologies, and will likely get a PR boost even if they do not make a profit. They're trying to reduce the carbon footprint of their huge internet server farms.

To the previous poster, the DOE doesn't need to be involved. There's a reason why the Australian plan would cost 25x as much.

Just thought I would pass along the what is better viagra or levitra name of another company that is www.velikibrat.us doing it's part for the environment, its called ShieldSafe. It is a green identity theft protection company that gives direct donations to charities for each member it protects. Plus, if you use the promotion code "green" you save 50% off the annual price, making it only $24 for an entire year. It's their way of viagra fast delivery thanking those that are environemtally responsible. You can check them out at www.shieldsafe.com

when will google have too much power?
written by johnhomer, September 07, 2008
when they are completely autonomous from the governement's power. This is a major step.

EGS is a distraction. MIT may have performed a disservice by getting folks hot on longer term research when bountiful fruit is there for the picking.

Ormat, the premier geothermal developer, just bought leases near a live volcano in Alaska.

Good idea?

The guvnor might think live volcanoes are mighty fine but possibly not everyone agrees with her.

Still Ormat knows where the prime pickings are and they aren't where some think they are.

Best, Terry
