Geothermal Energy in Central America


The basic reason for Central America’s geothermal energy riches can be summed up in one word: volcanoes

Even more impressive is the amount of geothermal energy that Central Americans have under foot, but so far failed to exploit. World Bank reports indicate that the countries of the region may have up to 25 times more geothermal energy than they are currently using, and that geothermal power alone could cost-effectively satisfy their entire electricity demand.
