Geothermal energy: the missing link in the lithium story - HATCH
The Salton Sea area of Southern California is one of the world’s most active geothermal hot spots. The area is home to a naturally pressurized brine reservoir—water full of dissolved salts and minerals—where the temperature can reach 600°F in locations that go as deep as 6,000 feet. The combination of geography, geology, and chemistry make the region a natural for geothermal energy production, something that is becoming increasingly important in a world that needs clean, green power.
Geothermal energy is “baseload” power.
It flows night and day, winter and summer. The plants that harness it will operate for decades, so they can play an important role by complementing and leveling the cyclic-production profile of other renewable resources, notably wind and solar energy. Read the whole story HERE
