Advantages of Geothermal Energy?

Geothermal energy is a renewable, clean, and environmentally friendly source of power. It does not emit any greenhouse gases and its use does not contribute to global warming.

Geothermal electricity can be used in remote areas where there is no access to the grid. 

It is more Reliable.

Geothermal electricity can help reduce the carbon footprint from fossil fuels by replacing them with geothermal power plants. 

Geothermal electricity helps reduce CO2 emissions that are caused by burning coal or natural gas for electrical generation.

Geothermal energy is a form of renewable energy that is generated by harnessing the heat of the Earth. 

Geothermal power plants use steam or hot water from deep within the Earth to generate electricity. 

This type of energy has many advantages over other forms of electricity production, such as fossil fuels.

The heat source used in geothermal power plants comes from an unlimited supply. 

Geothermal power plants are not dependent on fuel prices. 

Geothermal plants are environmentally friendly because they don't emit carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases during operation.

Disadvantages of Geothermal Energy:

It is not economical ( high in cost )

Maintenance is more.

It has a fear of Earthquakes.

Geothermal energy production is expensive because it requires drilling into the earth. 

In order to get a sufficient amount of geothermal energy, you need to drill hundreds of meters deep. It may leads to unstable to earth surface.

There are some environmental impacts associated with geothermal energy like noise pollution and vibration disturbances caused by the equipment used to create electricity from geothermal sources. 

There are limitations on how much power can be generated from these sources as they need natural resources like hot water or steam underground which may not always be available at any given time during operation.
