Margarita de Gregorio: “The interesting thing about geothermal energy is that it can always be available to produce electricity, it is manageable”.

Recently, the Instituto para la Diversificación y Ahorro de la Energía (IDAE) awarded 120 million euros from the Next Generation funds to 14 projects to explore the potential of deep geothermal energy in Spain. La Razón has published a report on the potential of geothermal energy in Spain. Margarita de Gregorio, coordinator of Geoplat, explained to this media that “within geothermal energy there are two...

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...

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...
