Electrical to Thermal

An energy transformation is the change of energy from one form to another. Energy transformations occur everywhere every second of the day. There are many different forms of energy such as electrical, thermal, nuclear, mechanical, electromagnetic, sound, and chemical.

Geothermal Power (Heat→ Electric Energy)
Geothermal Power (Heat→ Electric Energy)

Heating boilers are not present in geothermal steam power plants and no heating fuel is used. Production wells (red on the illustrations) are used to lead hot water/steam from the reservoirs and into the power plant.

Ocean Thermal Power (Heat → Electric Energy)
