Geothermal energy is a type of renewable energy that is generated by harnessing the heat from the Earth’s core. It is generated by tapping into the Earth’s internal heat, which is produced by the decay of radioactive materials and the gradual cooling of the Earth’s core. This heat can be used to generate electricity or to heat buildings. Geothermal power plants use the Earth’s natural heat to generate electricity, while geothermal heating systems use the heat to warm buildings.
