Latin American and Caribbean countries use volcanic landscapes to tap geothermal energy

NPR 'The World' | May 7, 2021


Geothermal, a renewable energy source that involves drilling for hot steam deep underground, currently provides less than 1% of the world’s energy. It's a resource that could theoretically be accessible everywhere on the planet. Advocates are particularly interested in increasing its footprint in developing countries, such as Latin America and the Caribbean, to help boost energy economies without increasing carbon emissions.
