Abstract: This paper examined the current Global Geothermal Energy Potentials and their future Prospects. The study assessed the global geothermal energy resources, their nature, extent of availability, estimated derivable electricity, the current level of exploitation, and business opportunities available. The paper presented a historical perspective of geothermal extraction for power generation, industrial process heating and cooling of buildings. In the review, different techniques for converting geothermal energy into electrical power had been studied. The paper also reported a summary of the global geothermal energy usage.
