How Geothermal Systems Form. Geothermal Occurances Today.

Geothermal Workshop
Summary: The New Zealand Geothermal Workshop is a three-day conference held annually in early November. The Workshop provides an international forum where engineers and earth scientists discuss aspects of geothermal development.

Summary: Geothermal, solar, etc; indigenous production of geothermal, solar, wind, tide and wave energy and the use of these energy forms for electricity generation. The quantity of geothermal energy entering electricity generation is inferred from the electricity production at geothermal plants assuming an average thermal efficiency of 10 per cent.

Geothermal Theory: Geothermal Use Today
Summary: Geothermal power plants now provide more than 2500 megawatts of capability for clean electricity to the U.S., equivalent to three large nuclear power plants.

Geothermal Theory, Geothermal Reservoirs: Fractured Rock (2)
Summary: In most high-temperature reservoirs, much of the porosity and permeability exist in natural rockfractures, although they may be artificially induced. In other reservoirs, the space between sand grains in the rock provides ample porosity and permeability.
