Geothermal energy can provide a highly dependable and virtually infinite source of energy. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the upper five kilometres of the Earth’s crust in Europe contained enough energy to supply the continent with about 4,000 terawatt hours of electricity and 2,000 terawatt hours of heat each year, which is roughly equivalent to Europe’s annual energy usage. Find out more about the three widely-used processes that can help you harness this energy.
