i'm working on a project for my environmental science class that will discuss the future direction of energy in the city that i live in. I am specifically investigating geothermal energy and its suitability for use as a renewable energy resource. I was hoping that professionals could answer the following questions:
1. What are the major benefits of geothermal energy over other types of renewable energy resources?
2. What disadvantages do geothermal energy have and what are ways to lessen those problems?
3. Is geothermal energy economically beneficial, especially for a small area or small city?
4. In areas where geothermal energy is not widely available, how reasonable is it to drill for geothermal sources?
