UPNA researchers generate electricity in Antarctica using geothermal heat

UPNA researchers generate electricity in Antarctica using geothermal heat

Researchers from the Public University of Navarra (UPNA), belonging to the Smart Cities Institute (ISC), have managed to generate electricity continuously in Antarctica using geothermal heat. The Thermal and Fluids Engineering team developed this innovative technology that makes it possible to harness the natural heat of the Earth’s interior to produce electricity. The project, known as ‘Autonomous Thermoelectric Generators for Volcanic Monitoring’ (VIVOTEG), was carried...

The 9 reasons why the DOE (USA) is betting on geothermal energy:

The 9 reasons why the DOE (USA) is betting on geothermal energy:

It is green. It provides energy by harnessing the heat that flows continuously from the Earth’s interior to the surface without burning fossil fuels. It is always available and flexible. It is a reliable source of clean energy that is not dependent on the weather, which means it can be harnessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Its power output can also be...
