With climate change once again in the spotlight, it’s important to look beyond just solar & wind to the largely underutilized geothermal energy.
Is so-called cleantech (alternative energy and related sectors) still the next big thing for American venture capitalists?
The U.S. has more installed geothermal capacity than any country in the world—and the capacity for much more… Could it be the next big energy source domestically and beyond?
Stanford environmental policy wonk Dan Reicher discusses new modes of financing renewable energy and why now is the time to make the move to solar, wind and other green forms of power.
Geothermal power, which draws heat from deep beneath the earth’s surface and converts it into electricity, is an underutilized resource with huge potential.
Dear EarthTalk: Is there any way to harness volcanic energy to meet our electricity and other power needs?
The Other Heat Pump Gas Absorption Heat Pumps Make Sense in Cool Climates—Can They Cool Homes Efficiently, Too?
Geothermal heat pumps are all the rage, but gas absorption heat pumps don’t require all that pricey drilling, and can even cool effectively.
While politicians argue over drilling in the Arctic and along the coasts, an “underground” energy movement—geothermal—is quietly taking shape.
