  • The race for alternative energy sources: new geothermal projects in Europe

    In the race to find alternative energy sources, geothermal energy is gaining favour. Geothermal energy is a continuous source of energy since the heat is trapped inside the earth, without depleting. This places geothermal energy above sporadic wind and solar energy, which tends to have a capacity factor of only 20-35%; geothermal capacity is more than 70%. Although global energy use from ...
