Geothermal

Solutions Journalism Network

Solutions journalism is news about how communities and organizations are responding to social and environmental problems. This collection contains solutions stories about cities and countries that show that geothermal energy has the potential to provide significant energy capacity in a completely sustainable way.  Two stories in this collection feature Iceland, where geothermal energy heats pools that define their communities, and geothermal power plants turn CO2 into a solid to stop it from entering into the atmosphere. Kenya has also experienced success in harnessing geothermal energy, and it was able to supply almost half of the country's energy needs in 2015. Another story addresses new technology from a Swedish company that can harness geothermal energy more efficiently and could make it economically viable for the world.
