When water comes into contact with hot rocks deep in the Earth’s crust, it can rise to the surface to form springs.
What are the three main uses of geothermal energy?
The three main uses of geothermal energy are: 1) Direct Use and District Heating Systems which use hot water from springs or reservoirs near the surface. 2) Electricity generation in a power plant requires water or steam at very high temperature (300 to 700 degrees Fahrenheit).
Which renewable energy is the best in Malaysia?
