New Energy Academy x Iceland School of Energy

  • Get to know the ins and outs of geothermal energy 
  • Find out about examples of how we currently use this resource 
  • Learn about the future outlook for this form of energy, which is right beneath our feet. 

Historically, geothermal energy has been utilised predominantly for power generation. Therefore, it has been limited to areas near tectonic plate boundaries and other ´hot spots´ due to the need of high-temperature resources for power generation. The past decade, however, has seen a strategic shift in the positioning of geothermal energy as a steady supplier for the heating and cooling market for which lower temperature resources are needed. What will the role of geothermal energy be in the energy transition?
