Experts Say Time is Right for Geothermal

Solar and www.auburg.de wind have been the pfizer cialis uk celebrities of renewable energy news coverage recently, but according to the United States Geological Survey and industry experts, geothermal energy is the next big thing.

The current economic crisis and rising costs of oil have led to a push for more geothermal energy production in the U.S., already the world’s leading producer.

In the first government assessment in 30 years, the USGS reports that the U.S. has “identified conventional” sources of geothermal energy that, if fully developed, are capable of generating 9,057 megawatts (MW). One megawatt is http://dependablehealthcareservices.com/pa/joycejacob/info-viagra equal to 1,000 kilowatts, enough to serve about 1,000 U.S. homes, meaning 9,057 MW could power 9,057,000 homes.

Another potential 30,033 MW is available in “conventional undiscovered” sources and 517,800 MW from Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS), sources that have high temperatures and low permeability. This figure makes Google’s August announcement that it was investing $10 million in EGS development pretty exciting.

At an international conference this week on geothermal energy, industry insiders revealed that projects are being developed in Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. Nevada, which has the most potential geothermal power, has 45 projects alone. More than 2,100 MW can be produced in Nevada, more than enough to meet the cheapest generic levitra state requirement to have 20 percent renewable power production by 2015.

This news makes me feel like the U.S. is really in reach of viagra purchase utilizing large amounts of renewable energy. Let’s hope that the experts are right, the press coverage increases and the funding follows.

Maybe the most important project is occurring in Florida even while most eyes are focused on the mountainous west:

[url=[quote][i]FAIRBANKS — Clean-power crusader Bernie Karl and brand viagra overnight delivery two major partners want to make electricity out of oil field water using geothermal technology proven at Chena Hot Springs.

Karl’s Chena Power is teaming with UTC Power, a division of United Technologies Corp., and Quantum Oil and Gas to match a $742,000 federal Department of Energy grant to generate electricity from hot water drawn up through wells at a Jay, Fla., oil field. On-the-ground work could start in early 2009.[/i]

Consider the low temperature hot spring at Chena Hot Spring in Alaska produces the only electric power in Alaska from geothermal resources despite the online pharmacy viagra most abundant high temperature resources of any state. Low temperature resources are scattered throughout the U.S.

Countries far away from the Pacific "Ring of Fire" are aggressively developing geothermal resources, notably Germany, while the U.S. is mostly thinking on it while worshipping the the sun, the source of www.kletterwald-sayn.de the most expensive and difficult alternate power source of them all.

JMO.

this is out of 793,060 MW total supply in U.S. (as of 2001).

Earthquakes?
written by cmdrtebok, October 12, 2008
I remember reading once that bringing online certain geothermal plants in California increased fault activity. I wish I had more datails... As long as tapping the geothermal resources don't cause more earthquakes I'm all for it.

It seems like the only time I hear about geothermal these days is when it's on or near a wilderness or other fragile are (e.g., the Newberry National Volcanic Monument in Oregon).

Like hydroelectric, this seemingly "free and clean" source of energy can have consequences on the surrounding areas. These need to be evaluated and balanced.

At what cost?
written by bbm, October 12, 2008
"Possible" is not the http://www.pereverges.cat/buy-levitra-online-cheap same as "economic".

Probably not as cheap as nuclear...

Yep, drill for geothermal.
That's where our drilled expertise should be concentrated.

Shine baby shine.
Blow baby blow.
Drill baby drill --- for geothermal!

Geothermal drill holes can leak CO2, and the water that they pump down to get turned into steam often carries heavy metals back up with it, once these problems are solved it will be a wonder power.
