Use GEOTHERMAL ENERGY to stay warm

Heat from the earth can be used as an energy source in many ways, from large and complex power stations to small and relatively simple pumping systems. This heat energy, known as geothermal energy, can be found almost anywhere—as far away as remote deep wells in Indonesia and as close as the dirt in our backyards. Many regions of the world are already tapping geothermal energy as an affordable and sustainable solution to reducing dependence on fossil fuels and the public health risks that result from their use.

Geothermal resource potential depends on many factors. The geothermal resource potential map for the contiguous 48 United States is a composite of heat flow, thermal gradient, and sediment thickness. The map was created by NREL using data provided by the Southern Methodist University Geothermal Laboratory. This resource data represents approximate areas where more intensive geothermal uses will most likely be found. Areas labeled as "good" are more likely to represent direct-use applications (e.g., direct heating of buildings, aqua culture, greenhouses). Areas labeled as "excellent" represent areas where electricity applications are potentially possible. The Alaska and Hawaii estimates are based on publications by those states indicating the probability of a region containing developable geothermal resource.
