In thousands of homes and buildings across the United States, geothermal heat pumps also use the steady temperatures just underground to heat and cool buildings, cleanly and inexpensively.

This diagram by "British Geological Survey" demonstrates a geothermal power plant and how it functions. This diagram is successful because it shows where raw geothermal energy comes from and how it can be harvested and converted into power.

With more than megawatts in eight states, the United States is a global leader in installed geothermal capacity.

With more than 3,300 megawatts in eight states, the United States is a global leader in installed geothermal capacity.

By Peter Emson Geothermal Energy is another type of renewable energy resource that makes use of the large amounts of energy.

These geothermal facilities produced approximately 68 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, enough to meet the annual needs of more than 6 million typical U.S. households. Geothermal plants account for more than 25 percent of the electricity produced in both Iceland and El Salvador

For example, as of 2013 more than megawatts (MW) of large, utility-scale geothermal capacity was in operation globally, with another MW in planned capacity additions on the way

For example, as of 2013 more than 11,700 megawatts (MW) of large, utility-scale geothermal capacity was in operation globally, with another 11,700 MW in planned capacity additions on the way
