1 Answer
  • When heat from the earth is used a driving source of energy in many ways this energy can be used in running large and complex power stations to simple machines. This heat is known a Geothermal energy.
  • This energy is much affordable and sustainable than the fossil fuels many countries are trying to develop and use this technology as a sustainable and permanent source of energy.
  • Below the earth's crust there is a hot and molten rock called magma. Heat is continously produced in this layer due to the decay of radioactive materials such as uranium and potassium. The energy produced by the geothermal activities is 50,000 times more than the energy produced by by natural oil and gas resources.
