Geothermal power


Geothermal power generation is a new power generation technology which making use of underground hot water and steam as power source. The basic principle is similar to thermal power generation, and it is also based on the principle of energy conversion, first converting geothermal energy into mechanical energy, and then converting mechanical energy into electrical energy. Geothermal energy is renewable heat from deep within the Earth, resulting from the decay of molten magma and radioactive materials on Earth. The circulation of the deep groundwater and the intrusion of magma from the very deep into the Earth's crust carry heat from the deep underground to the near surface.
