Geothermal power plants utilize hydrothermal resources that contain both heat (thermal) and water (hydro). Geothermal power generation is valued for its high reliability, independence from short term weather fluctuations, and long operating life. The total installed capacity for global geothermal power generation was estimated to be around 14.06 gigawatts (GW). Geothermal power runs at a much higher load factor than wind or solar, so geothermal produces significantly more electricity per megawatts (MW) of capacity. Geothermal power has considerable potential for growth as the amount of heat within 10,000 metres of the earth's surface is estimated to contain 50,000 times more energy than all oil and gas resources worldwide.
