GEO Releases Informational Flyer

WASHINGTON — Geothermal Exchange Organization (GEO) recently released a one-page flyer titled “The Geothermal Spectrum,” which describes each of the three ways individuals can access the Earth’s heat including geothermal heat pumps, direct use, and geothermal power.

“Geothermal heat is an incredible energy resource that can be found at temperatures ranging from 40˚ to 700˚F,” said Doug Dougherty, president and CEO of GEO. “Geothermal heat pumps and their ground loops tap the upper portion of the Earth’s surface in a temperature range from 40˚ to 70˚F to heat and cool buildings, compared to technologies that directly tap geologically hot water and steam for commercial uses and making electricity.”

Geothermal heat pumps may be installed almost anywhere and are designed to accommodate the heating and cooling needs of homes, schools, and workplaces.

“Where nature creates the right conditions, geothermal hot springs can provide energy for fish farms, greenhouses, and municipal heating systems,” said Dougherty. “And, in some places, deep geologic activity creates super-hot water and steam that can be used by geothermal power plants to generate electricity for thousands of consumers.”

“The Geothermal Spectrum” can be accessed, free of charge, at www.geoexhange.org.
