About the book
Geothermal energy is the natural heat energy from the Earth. Unlike other renewable energies, geothermal energy has attractive features; it is available, stable at all times throughout the year, independent of weather conditions, and has an inherent storage capability. The source of geothermal energy is the continuous heat energy flux flowing from the interior of the Earth toward its surface. Geothermal energy is also considered to be an environmentally friendly clean energy source that could significantly contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions. The geothermal energy resources of Earth are enormous and vary geographically, depending on the depth and temperature of the resource, the rock chemical composition, and the abundance of groundwater. Due to its important utilization and future prospects, various interesting topics of research related to geothermal energy are welcome in this book.
This book aims to present research contributions from experts and researchers worldwide.
