An infinite energy mine under the sea

An infinite energy mine under the sea

A recent report has revealed that there is an endless mine of electricity and energy under the sea. Electricity is needed in almost all the daily activities that we perform in our daily lives, that is why we have seen such striking projects as the photovoltaic tube that produces it with tap water. This dependency goes hand in hand with the need to move away from fossil fuels and switch to renewable energies, a point where progress is being made with the information below.

The diversification of electricity sources ensures greater energy security. Dependence on a single source of generation, as is the case with fossil fuels, carries a high risk of interruptions in the electricity supply. On the contrary, the integration of new technologies and renewable energy sources makes it possible to diversify the energy mix and to guarantee a more stable and reliable supply.

The search for new ways to produce electricity is driven by the quest to reduce the impact on the environment by reducing dependence on fossil fuels. The integration of new technologies and renewable sources is essential to achieve an optimal energy transition.

Infinite electricity mine under the sea: the ‘greatest treasure in history’

An unlimited and cheap source of hydrogen and electricity has been discovered on the seabed. The above report (from CGG) reveals the incredible potential for extracting geothermal energy from the sea by using the movement of undersea tectonic plates.

CGG is an expert consultant in renewable energy technology and the company behind the research that reveals the energy treasure under the sea. According to their information, there is still a huge untapped potential that promises to bring the world a cheaper and more accessible source of electricity.

Geothermal energy could become an inexhaustible and stable source of energy that radically reduces the price of electricity. Unlike other technologies such as nuclear fusion (also promising), geothermal energy is already in operation.

Unlike solar and wind energy, electricity is available 24 hours a dayseven days a week. In addition, the infrastructure costs are much lower.

However, geothermal prospecting to find optimal locations for plant installation is expensive and does not always yield the expected results. Therefore, companies often install these plants in places with easy access to highly fractured and permeable hot rocks, which severely limits their deployment and prevents widespread expansion.

This electricity mine under the sea has become one of the most sought-after energy sources.

There are entities that have come up with new technologies to overcome this problem, technologies that are already injecting energy into the grid. However, the CGG report says extraction is easier if it takes place at the bottom of the sea.

The consultant specifically mentions the installation of geothermal plants in places where seabed spreading occurs, a process that occurs when tectonic plants continually separate from each other. In this way, they produce new pieces of the earth’s crust.

CGG estimates that there are approximately 65,000 square kilometers of land where magma from these huge submarine fractures is very close to the surface. The consultant warns that in some areas it will make more sense to take the fresh water from the steam flowing through the turbines and electrolyze it to generate green hydrogen.

Several things can be exploited in this way. On the one hand the fresh water that appears as a by-product and on the other hand the hydrogen as it is and the ammonia that can appear converted into hydrogen. In short, the consultant would have an infinite energy mine under the sea.
