A Visual Crash Course on Geothermal Energy

Geothermal is a lesser-known type of renewable energy that uses heat from the Earth’s molten core to produce electricity.

In this infographic, we’ve used a combination of diagrams and charts to give you a high level overview of this sustainable energy source.
