CSIC tests non-invasive methodology to monitor geothermal reservoirs

CSIC tests non-invasive methodology to monitor geothermal reservoirs

Environmental seismic noise allows monitoring the vapour content in the subsurface to optimise the efficiency of geothermal energy production. This is the main conclusion of a study led by the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) in Iceland and published in the journal Nature Portfolio, whose pioneering approach focuses on the sustainability and profitability of this form of clean energy. Geothermal energy production usually produces...

Geothermal power aims to account for 5% of global electricity supply by 2050

Geothermal power aims to account for 5% of global electricity supply by 2050

Geothermal energy aims to account for 5% of global electricity supply by 2050, up from 0.5% today, positioning it as a real alternative for self-consumption. By providing regular energy input, harnessing the Earth’s internal heat, it offers the opportunity for countries to reduce dependence on imported fossil fuels. This energy independence not only strengthens national economies, but can also act as a buffer against energy...
