ABSTRACT
The article offers information about geothermal energy. It notes that it is the energy contained in the heated rocks and fluid that fill the fractures and pores within the crust of the Earth. It mentions that this energy can be used for a wide range of temperatures, from room temperature to 300° Fahrenheit. It adds that it can be utilised directly as heat for district heating system or industrial process and for bathing or heating houses.
