ABSTRACT
The article offers information concerning a report on geothermal heat titled "The Geothermal Report Ed. 4 2007." It is stated that the report provides an excellent introduction and understanding of the three technologies for exploiting geothermal energy, including power generation, ground source heat pumps (GSHP) and direct use. Moreover, it tracks development and use of technology in the industry, as well as the power generation, efficiency and location of resources.
