The biggest disadvantage of Geothermal Energy for the production of electricity is that it requires a natural geothermal reservoir and thus it cannot be widely used. These geothermal reservoirs are available in only some areas of the world and particularly near the tectonic places where there is also high volcano activity.
When it comes to the differences between offshore and onshore wind farms, offshore wind farms have many more advantages over onshore wind farms as far as their efficiency, capacity and generation of higher levels of electricity are concerned.
We have seen in previous articles how Geothermal Energy can be used for the production of electricity and for heating and cooling purposes of buildings. The following is a list of interesting facts about Geothermal Energy.
We have seen up to now how Wind Power can be used to generate electricity in wind farms and to cover the needs of a home with home wind turbines. Wind Power can also be used in a number of commercial applications to cover some of the needs of your company or organization.
Before the installation of a Geothermal Heat Pump (GHP) system a number of design factors need to be considered. One of the most critical design factors is the type the loop of the GHP system. There are 2 types of GHP systems namely the closed loop systems and the open loop systems.
A wind farm is a collection of wind turbines in a single location and is used for the commercial production of electricity. There are two types of wind warms: the onshore wind farms and the offshore wind farms.
CSP Today USA 2012 is the 6th Concentrated Solar Thermal Power Conference and Exhibition and will take place during 27-28 June, at the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. With more than 80 speakers and 700 attendees,
Geothermal energy can be utilized in three different forms. First, by using geothermal heat pumps for heating and cooling purposes of buildings, second by utilizing geothermal reservoirs for the commercial production of electricity and third by the use of Enhance Geothermal Systems for the commercial production of electricity.
