Today’s proposal: using geothermal energy to generate round-the-clock, carbon-free electricity. Pat Dobson at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab explains how power plant operators can extract the geothermal energy from heat zones deep within the Earth.
Heat pumps are often suggested as a way for homes to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. However, their high price tag has traditionally made them inaccessible to many. By installing neighborhood wide geothermal technology, GeoGrids could provide the solution.
