Geothermal energy is a form of renewable energy. It is produced from heat within the Earth that also serves as remnants from the Earth's formation.

Formation

Geothermal energy comes from water is heated by magma within the Earth. The water gushes out in the form of steam, sometimes in the form of a geyser. It can form near the boundaries of tectonic plates.

Collection

Geothermal collection is collected within geothermal power stations. When the steam hits turbines within a station, the turbines convert the kinetic energy into electricity, which is then used.
