Geothermal energy in the world

La geothermal energy It is part of the group of renewable alternative energies.
This type of energy is not new but today there is a greater interest in using this resource in the world.
La geothermal energy uses natural heat from the ground through groundwater that is at least 4000 meters below the surface and where the temperature is higher than normal.
The procedure is quite simple, it is necessary to drill the earth in specific geographical areas where the temperature is high enough, then the water and steam are channeled and then directed towards a turbine connected to a generator that produces the energy.
The greater interest in clean energy causes a significant boom in this type of energy. The most important advantages they have is that it is a renewable resource, provides a constant flow of energy, hardly emits contamination and requires little space to install a geothermal plant.
The disadvantages of this source is that only in certain areas of the planet exist hot spots or geographical areas suitable to produce energy in this way and the cost of construction is high.
In the world there are more than 250 geothermal plants and there are various projects or plants under construction around the world because this type of source significantly helps to increase the total energy capacity of the countries.
The geothermal resource can be a very interesting resource for Poor countries to be able to obtain energy since a large part of the areas of the planet that have geothermal qualities belong to underdeveloped countries, especially in Africa, Asia and parts of South America they have great potential.
Geothermal energy is increasing the energy capacity of large regions of the world and countries such as China, providing access to electricity to millions of people.
It is ideal to combine geothermal plants with other types of alternative sources in order to increase energy resources.
Using alternative sources responsibly will help significantly to avoid environmental and social problems.
