as a lot more uses than you might think. Since geothermal energy comes in hot springs, the hot water from it can be used for bathing and also cooking. Also, the geothermal energy can be used to heat buildings and districts. If the building is near hot spring's source, then the hot water from it can be inserted directly for heating. The building can also be cooled with the heat, using a temperature control system. Sometimes geothermal energy can be used to heat roads in the winter to s

top them from freezing. Another use of geothermal energy is generating electricity. A geothermal power plant produces not only heat and steam, but real electricity. This energy does not release any harmful emissions at all and is very energy efficient. Geothermal energy is also used in other unique ways such as food processing and industry. During food processing, the heat and steam from the earth can be used to clean the storage rooms and equipment. This would eliminate using chemicals in this process. For industry, many machines such as paper mills use geothermal energy for every step of processing. Wood is dried with heat from geothermal energy. All in all, geothermal energy is a clean, renewable energy source, and is needed in this energy crisis.
