RE RESEARCH

THIS IS FROM THE OP, DIRECT

QUOTE

Simon Redfern, professor of mineral physics at the University of Cambridge, told the BBC: "I think the risks are rather minor. The likelihood is that there will be natural eruptions before any that are generated by human activity.

GEOTHERMAL IS CHEAP ABUNDANT AND 24/7/365

ITS VERY SIMPLE

BUT IF YOU CAN USE MODERN TECHNOLOGY TO MAKE IT HOTTER, ITS LATENT POWER POTENTIAL SOARS AND COST PLUMMETS.
Simply put - 95% of Iceland's power stems from geothermal energy.

Overheard in a documentary yesterday.

YELLOWSTONE IS HUGE, ABOUT THE SAME SIZE AS ICELAND. COULD POWER USA AND KEEP OLD FAITHFUL GOING

GL

Iceland (39,769 mi²) is about eleven times as big as Yellowstone NP (3,468 mi²).

You know, Mr. Research is your friend. chuckle

Uh... no. about a quarter percent of Iceland's electricity and 87% of its hot water heating. HERE

Don't get me wrong; Iceland is doing a great job with renewables, but there aret very few places where a significant amount of electricity can be generated (at least not cost-effectively) from geothermal. The United States, Yellowstone's geysers to the contrary, is not one of those countries.

RE: GEOTHERMAL BREAKTHROUGH
We have geothermal in my city. In Holland, not really a place close to volcanoes or the ring of fire.

But it is more of a test setup I think. They go 2 km deep.

The wanan connect 4,000 new and existing homes, and 20,000 m2 of office space.

I must have gotten it confused with another country (there was also info about another country which I didn't really pay attention to).

Indeed Iceland is using its naturally occurring hot water. But to my mind, this is "geothermal" energy too.

My, my. This is curious. Are you sure that's where you found your info ?

The ol throw water on the volcano issue to make steam. I loved this idea as a kid. Growing up sucks.

You already made it clear what I can expect from you when you replied "Yes" when I said "I know you don't care about what I think".

That thread suddenly disappeared a minute or so after I read your reply...

QUOTE

When the drill gets to 5km, the team expects to find molten rock mixed with water. But with the extreme heat and immense pressure found at this depth, the water becomes what is known as "supercritical steam".

It is neither a liquid nor a gas, but it holds far more energy than either. And it is this supercritical steam that the team wants to bring back up to the surface to convert into electricity.

http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-38296251

UNQUOTE

AND IT HAS THE SIDE BENEFIT OF REDUCING THERMAL PRESSURE AND THUS THE RISK OF ERUPTIONS.

HAWAII TO BECOME ENERGY INDEPENDENT SAME AS ICELAND AND NEW ZEALAND.

AND CHEAP

GL

Cheap? You know the cost to drill 5 kilometers?

Geothermal is not cheap. The systems cost 3x more then conventional systems.
