EARTH SOURCE OF HEAT

Geothermal energy consists of using the natural internal heat of the Earth to produce heat and electricity on the surface.

The earth's crust is 30 km thick on average, allowing some of the heat from the earth's mantle to pass. The deeper into the earth's crust, the higher the heat (about
3 ° C every 100 meters).

Geothermal energy has long been exploited by men, as in China and ancient Rome, where water from hot springs was used.

THE ADVANTAGES OF GEOTHERMIA

Renewable energy, geothermal energy is distinguished by its characteristics and its possible uses adapted to the temperature of the deposited orebody.

THE USES OF GEOTHERMIA

The exploitation of geothermal power allows the generation of electricity and heat distributed via networks (existing or created to enhance heat).
