Alternative Energy: Geothermal

Geothermal energy booms in Germany. ‘Geothermal energy plants, which make use of our planet’s interior heat, are becoming increasingly popular in Western Europe. While Switzerland, Italy and Iceland have long harvested the heat from deep down, the latest country with a geothermal boom is Germany. Roughly 99 percent of the Earth’s mass is hotter than 1800 degrees. Granted, those temperatures can be found mostly deep inside the globe, but even closer to the surface, the heat they can be harvested.’
