Description:

Where are some places in the world that use geothermal energy? This article, part of a series about the future of energy, introduces students to two areas currently enjoying the benefits of geothermal energy. Reykjavik, Iceland, and San Bernardino, California, are presented as examples of cities that use geothermal energy to heat public and private buildings. Groundwater and geologic information supply clues to the success of using geothermal energy in these areas. The Geysers, located in California, is also highlighted as a large producer of electric power. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
