Nano-Technology Being Utilized for Geo-Thermal Energy

The Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is using a new method of nano-tech to revolutionize geo-thermal energy conduction.   PNNL's invented a metal-organic heat carrier, or MOHC, in the biphasic fluid may help improve thermodynamic efficency of the heat recovery process. The image below represents the molecular makeup of one of several MOHCs.

These new molecules will capture more heat from low-temperature geothermal resources.  This is essentially pollution-free electrical energy.  The scientist at PNNL hope to have completed a study by the end of this year to see if the approach can safely and economically extract and covert heat from geothermal resources.
