The expansion of geothermal energy keeps growing: from Island to Japan

The expansion of geothermal energy keeps growing: from Island to Japan

World’s first magma-EGS system created in Iceland In 2009, a borehole drilled at Krafla, northeast Iceland, as part of the Icelandic Deep Drilling Project (IDDP), unexpectedly penetrated into magma (molten rock) at only 2100 meters depth, with a temperature of 900-1000 C.  The borehole, IDDP-1, was the first in a series of wells being drilled by the IDDP in Iceland in the search for high-temperature...
