Geothermal Energy
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides a brief overview of the environmental and economic benefits of electricity production from geothermal resources.

Energy from geothermal resources has benefited humankind from its earliest origins. Prehistoric civilizations used hot springs and steam discharges for cooking, heating, and therapeutic bathing. Today, geothermal power plants operating around the world are proof that the Earth’s thermal energy is readily converted to electricity in geologically active areas.

Many communities, commercial enterprises, universities, and public facilities in the western United States are heated directly with the water from underground reservoirs. For the home-owner or building owner anywhere in the United States, the emergence of geothermal heat pumps brings the benefits of geothermal energy to everyone’s doorstep.

This 1 PDH online interactive presentation is applicable to owners of homes, businesses, or greenhouses who want to diversify their electricity supply and reduce the environmental impact and costs of their energy use.
