It is Now Cost Effective to Generate Electricity From Low-Temp Hot Springs in Iceland
Geothermal hot springs in Flúðir, Iceland have been harnessed to create clean energy using a breakthrough concept that uses low-heat geothermal at 116°C. Climeon Heat Power modules rapidly cool the temperature of the water to 76°C, and uses the temperature differential to generate clean energy. The system is very efficient at generating power. Previously, it wasn’t cost effective to produce electric from low temp hot springs in Iceland because the cost of electric is already pretty low, but this new technology has actually lowered the cost of producing electric even further, so that it is now even more efficient to produce.
