Educational factsheet about direct-use of geothermal energy - what it is, why do it, where can it be done, international figures for direct-use of geothermal energy and opportunities for using geothermal energy directly in Australia. Mini-abstract on factsheet as follows: Geothermal energy is a natural source of heat contained within the Earth, and it can be extracted and used either indirectly to generate electricity, or directly for heating applications.
