Direct Heat Use

Hot water from geothermal resources can be used to provide heat directly for an application.

Applications can be independent, or connected in series for cost savings. The latter is termed a “cascade system” where each system uses the fluids discharged from the previous process.

The potential for any given application in your area depends on the temperature of geothermal fluids available (see Hot & Steamy NZ).
