    Geothermal energy in the United States was first used for electric power production in The Geysers in California was developed into what is now the largest geothermal steam electrical plant in the world, at megawatts. Other geothermal steam fields are known in the western United States and Alaska. Geothermally generated electric power can be dispatchable to follow the demands of.

Geothermal energy is thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth. Thermal energy is the energy that determines the temperature of matter. The geothermal energy of the Earth's crust originates from the original formation of the planet and from radioactive decay of materials (in currently uncertain but possibly roughly equal proportions).The adjective geothermal originates from the Greek.

Nevertheless, the volumetric method (Muffler and Cataldi, ) is frequently used to estimate the size of geothermal resources. This method is based on an estimate of the heat. This paper describes an assessment of the enhanced geothermal system (EGS) resource base of the conterminous United States, using constructed temperature at depth maps.

The temperature at depth maps were computed from 3 to 10 km, for every km. The methodology is described. Factors included are sediment thickness, thermal conductivity variations, distribution of the radioactive Cited by: Internet link for Assessment of Geothermal Resources of the United States - Citation.

An earlier () geothermal assessment included a qualitative discussion of low-temperature geothermal waters in the United States (Sam mel, ); however, the data available at that time were not adequate for a quantitative assessment. The present geothermal­ resource assessment is an extension and expansion of.

The United States uses geothermal energy for electrical power generation and for a variety of direct use applications. The most notable developments are The Geysers in northern California, with approximately MWe, and the Imperial Valley of southern California, with 14 MWe being generated, and at Klamath Falls, Oregon and Boise, Idaho, where major district heating projects are under.
