Geothermal energy

As I talk about energy forms from time to time, I was pleased to spot this bit of news and to be able to share it with you. Not all areas on the planet are very good places for geothermal energy winning, but many are. There is a geothermal energy plant in Southampton, for example.

The ERC awarded its 10,000th grant to Inga Berre, an applied mathematician and leading Norwegian researcher in geothermal energy. Read the interview with Berre to find out how mathematics is helping us understand more about this ancient energy source first used by the Romans in their spas as well as what role geothermal energy can play in the transition to a carbon-neutral future.
