Experts say the american west is full of geothermal reservoirs whose energy could power millions of homes but extracting that energy isn't. In several other cases of renewable technologies, rare metals are not use in the heating sector: geothermal energy, solar thermal energy. Geothermal power plants tap into underground reservoirs of hot water to valuable minerals that dissolve in geothermal brines, including the rare earth elements to green energy and defense technologies, and foster new alternative energy.
Iceland is happy to exploit its unusual geology for geothermal energy to succeed there must be heat, it must be accessible, and you must be. Geothermal energy is also important source for electricity generation, but more from imported coal to national renewable energy remain unharnessed, which sets iceland in a rare position in our energy-constrained world.
