Today we shall discuss a concise history of geothermal energy:
The history of geothermal power can be old about ten thousand 10,000 years ago and it is related to the American Paleo-Indians at their settlement in hot springs. This history has been exposed through the utilization of archeology and demonstrates the Indians used the hot springs for activities including, bathing and heating. It is also supposed the springs were seen as a remedial source.
The first and initial geothermal energy use in industry was during the late 18th century near Pisa, Italy. This history of geothermal explain energy been used to extract boric acid from the Larderello Fields through the help and use of steam.
First Geothermal Plant Construction:
A history of the first geothermal power plant communicates to the Larderello Fields, when in 1904 the steam was effectively used to produce and generate power for the first time. It was assumed that geothermal energy was seen as the power of the coming future.
In addition to the above information the history further display. In 1922 the US primary and first geothermal power plant established and producing 250 kilowatts this system were provide light for the streets and buildings in the area for the locality. This plant didn’t last very long however, because of the modest power production compared to other sites across the world.
During the 1960’s, the first huge level industrial geothermal energy power plant was built in the U.S.A and produces 11 megawatts of environmentally friendly, renewable, geothermal electricity to facilitate the community. It is assumed that it was huge pace towards power of the future.
Onwards Progress of Geothermal Energy:
From that in 1960’s when geothermal industry towards development, several organizations and leading bodies are established to run, research, and develop latest and improved geothermal energy sites and technologies.
Today, the quantity of significant geothermal power plants in working in the U.S.A is 60 in numbers. And several additional across the globe. The history of geothermal power is just the initial basis of what we can expect from the future and what we can achieve from this energy. The geothermal energy and power development of the earlier period can give you an idea about how through this geothermal history, we can envisage, latest and greater capacity power stations could be established and developed in the future for electricity requirements.
