Solution

In volcanic areas, underground water (a) can often rise to a temperature of 200° C. Nowadays, wells are drilled to extract the steam which is used to drive turbines. This is one of the world’s fastest growing sources of energy. as the water is heated by enormous reservoirs of cooling rock several kilometers across, geothermal steam is regarded to be a renewable energy resource. Even in non- volcanic areas, underground water can be heated by natural radioactivity. In this case, however it is necessary to drill deeper before the water is as hot as 200° C. This method has been used for heating homes in certain areas for many years and is cheap, clean and efficient.
