Default Geothermal generators?

Anyone have a brand or experience with a small steam wheel generator setup? I've heard they are common place in Iceland. Looking for something to read on it

US Geothermal INC. has had a rough road in turning a profit. "OTEC" Ocean thermal energy conversion hasn't gone anywhere either while the potential is greater then Nuclear and our coral reefs need some cooling off. It a shame that we live on a water planet where we can't get enough fresh water for humans and growing crops. But since International corporation our in control and over half the world just doesn't have the money, the rich see starvation and disease to be the answer. Don't worry when those that deny global warming will have the defense department use the bomb create a nuclear winter. Problem solved.

You really need to proof read what you write.

Look at Sterling engine and Ericsson cycle. China makes some thermal engines. The steam can then be used for fresh water. They were once considered by the American auto industry.

Don't know her. At times I just let my fingers do the walking and they just don't put the images unto words they just walk right out of here.

The steam fields of Iceland, California, Italy and New Zealand are freakishly rare.

These are BIG BUCKS large scale enterprises.

A small project would entail about $1,000,000,000.00 all things considered.

[ This forum is no place to park anti-information.

[ OTEC was tried off of the Kona coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. It proved to be FAR more challenging than ANYONE anticipated.

[ If OTEC were active -- the plants would be kept miles away from any coastal reef -- lest they destroy the reef biota.

It a shame that we live on a water planet where we can't get enough fresh water for humans and growing crops.

[ Oceanic sourced fresh water is now economic even for agriculture.

[ Sorry, that technological barrier has been crushed -- by the Israelis.



[ The above video is dated. Israel now has so much fresh water in hand that its thinking is changing drastically.

[ This Israeli technology is now being massively exported. See Melbourne, Australia.

But since International corporation our in control and over half the world just doesn't have the money, the rich see starvation and disease to be the answer.

[ See your doctor about modifying your meds.

Don't worry when those that deny global warming will have the defense department use the bomb create a nuclear winter. Problem solved.
All of your Social Justice Warrioring has fried your brain.

Just chill.

For further ranting, flip over to Controversial Topics.

You are expected to keep it clean in "Alternative Energy."
