Geothermal Energy: A Treasure Beneath Our Feet

Earth's heat has been there since the beginning of time, is inexhaustible and can be utilised with very simple processing: Geothermal energy is a treasure beneath our feet. Rauch Geothermics is one of the leading companies unearthing this treasure. More than 99% of the earth is hotter than 1,000 degrees Celsius (1,800 degrees Fahrenheit). A constant stream of heat steadily flows from the earth's interior to the surface. This process is permanent the earth will not cool down.
In this way, the earth creates a renewable supply of heat which is, for all intents and purposes, as inexhaustible as the sun's energy.

The idea behind geothermal energy recovery is to make use of this constant flow
of heat. And the deeper we go into the earth's interior, the hotter it becomes. The earth's heat increases by roughly 30°C per 1000 metres on average. The deeper the rock, the hotter it gets, and the same applies to any water surrounding the rock. At many locations around the world, this water bubbles to the surface as a thermal spring or geyser. However, if you want to reach the real heat, you have to drill holes in the right places. And you must know the location where the conditions for drilling and energy recovery are ideal – from both geological and economic standpoints. Specializing since its establishment in deep geothermal energy,
Rauch Geothermics has this knowledge.
