Deep Geothermal Energy - The Potential
The feasibility of generating energy from geothermal sources is often underestimated.
Germany is generally well positioned for the building of geothermal power plants. As Germany has a long history of mining and prospecting, a great deal of geological information is already available. The authorities (mining agencies) are well established, extremely knowledgeable and well-staffed; Germany is one of the leading nations regarding the technical expertise in this field – all of this makes the exploitation of geothermal energy very attractive.
Geothermal energy is an unlimited resource which is available locally for 24 hours each day with zero C02 emissions.
