Using heat from the Earth’s core for energy production

I was looking over the Office of Science (DOE) webpage and found Dr. Brinkman’s presentations page.

I hadn’t noticed this one before; harnessing geothermal source for a novel mass production power plant. The first activity of the Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) are planned for next year.

    1. The heat in the Earth’s mantle (where volcanic lava comes from) is plentiful and shouldn’t change temps at the surface. But, I’m no expert either. Good question, though!
