Ambitious geothermal energy project in Iceland successfully completes its first phase

Geothermal Energy - Volcano in Iceland

Iceland Deep Drilling Project has completed drilling into a volcano Geologists and engineers in Iceland have successfully completed the first stage of the Iceland Deep Drilling Project, focused on gauging the economic feasibility of unconventional geothermal energy resources. The project involved drilling deep into the heart of a volcano. Drilling such a borehole is quite risky, but the project has managed to reach its target depth. Now, researchers will determine how the volcano can be used to generate geothermal energy in an effective manner. Project drills 2.9 miles into a…
