Geothermal Energy / Energy Production
Hydrothermal/Conventional geothermal power plants are located at sites where heat, water and permeable rock already exist in the subsurface.
Engineered Geothermal Systems are a technology that eliminates the need for pre-existing subsurface water and/or permeable rock.
With EGS, fluid is injected into hot rock that has been fractured to create fluid flow pathways.
