There are three types of goe thermal power plant in working .Geo thermal power plants are those power plants which produce electricity from natural sourse of steam and hot water from aquifers of hot water heated by hot rocks underground.

a small fraction of the emission intensity of conventional fossil fuel plants. y y y . as a form of carbon capture and storage. These pollutants contribute to global warming.5 square kilometres per gigawatt of electrical production versus 32 and 12 square kilometres for coal facilities and wind farms respectively. Geothermal has minimal land and freshwater requirements. or oil. and can cause environmental damage if released. acid rain. arsenic.000 seismic events measuring up to 3. The project in Basel. Geothermal plants could theoretically inject these gases back into the earth. hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Geothermal plants use 3.4 on the Richter Scale occurred over the first 6 days of water injection. The modern practice of injecting geothermal fluids back into the Earth to stimulate production has the side benefit of reducing this environmental risk.They use 20 litres of freshwater per MW·h versus over 1000 litres per MW·h for nuclear. antimony. coal. and noxious smells if released. methane (CH4) and ammonia (NH3). In addition to dissolved gases. These chemicals come out of solution as the water cools. Enhanced geothermal systems can trigger earthquakes as part of hydraulic fracturing. boron. Switzerland was suspended because more than 10. Existing geothermal electric plants emit an average of 122 kg of CO2 per megawatt-hour (MW·h) of electricity.y y drawn from the deep earth carry a mixture of gases. and salt. notably carbon dioxide (CO2). hot water from geothermal sources may hold in solution trace amounts of toxic chemicals such as mercury.

. with an associated healthcare savings of almost 53 million ‡ The number of related heart attacks would be reduced by 13. with an associated healthcare savings of almost 2 million .924. Reducing power plant nitrogen emissions by one million tons and sulfur emissions by four million tons as of 2010 would mean: ‡ The number of related deaths would be reduced by 8714.An analysis by Abt Associates assesses the health impacts related to power plant emissions.
