Will the heat ever be used up?


Geothermal energy is constantly being generated by the earth over geological time. However EGS sites, where water is circulated through the same geothermal reservoir, will find temperatures are reduced over time. To combat this, a project may develop multiple reservoirs which are used on a rotational basis. The dormant reservoir will naturally re-gain temperature and be available for use again.
