Deep geothermal technology can harness the heat stored beneath the Earth’s crust to make abundant zero emissions energy. Imagine, if you will, a decommissioned coal generating station sitting cold and dark. It has a direct connection to the grid, but no electrons flow because burning coal destroys the environment. But wait! What if, by some alchemy, some magic, a supply of superheated steam that is the correct temperature and pressure to make those old turbines spin again were available? And what if that steam was heated without any carbon emissions at all by the Earth’s own geothermal energy 12 miles below the surface?
