future of renewable reources
Geothermal Energy. It's Hot
Renewable energy sources are being used alot more because people know that we will eventually run out of fossil fuels. Some renewable resources are wind power,solar power,biomass energy, hydropower , and geothermal energy. Renewable energy sources are more clean than non-renewable energy sources.
Geothermal energy is a renewable energy source. "Geo" means earth and "themal"means heat (earth heat.) Geothermal energy is heat that comes from the earth. About four feet under ground the temperature is fifty five degrees. Geothermal energy gets to the earth bye volcanoes, hot springs, and geysers. Geothermal energy exists all over the world. Geothermal energy is not very popular right now but it could have amazing effects in the future.
Advantages of geothermal energy
Geothermal energy is considered the most "green" renewable energy source in the world. In the winter geothermal systems won't turn of any time in the year. No fuel is needed which is good because the fuel would be fossil fuels and we are trying to save the fossil fuels. Geothermal energy power stations don't pollute the air. Luckily geothermal power stations don't take up much room. Fortunately there are many advantages in geothermal energy.
Disadvantages of geothermal energy
Unfortunately geothermal energy is not reliabe. Hot spring could stop working out of the blue. Geothermal energy power plants need to be near bodies of water. To get geothermal energy the earth has to drilled in to for extreme distances and that could cause earth quakes. Moving geothermal power stations is very hard because there is lots of stuff to move. Hazardous chemicals such as mecury, hydroge sulfide, and ammonia could be released during the process of geothermal energy. For these reasons geothermal energy is not the best renewable resource.
