The book encounters basic knowledge about geothermal technology for the utilization of geothermal resources. The book helps to understand the basic geology needed for the utilization of geothermal energy, shows up the practice to make access to geothermal reservoirs by drilling and the engineering of the reservoir by enhancing methods. The book describes the technology to make use of the Earth?s heat for direct use, power, and/or chill and gives boundary conditions for its economic and environmental utilization. A special focus is made on enhanced or engineered geothermal systems (EGS) which are based on concepts which bring a priori less productive reservoirs to an economic use.

"It can be said that this book achieves his goal to be a reference of great value to scientists and decision–makers in research and politics, as well as those giving courses in petroleum engineering, for example. It provides a good overview on the state of the art of all the aspects, which need to be considered, when installing an Enhanced Geothermal Systems Plant. It should not be missed in the bookshelf′s of people dealing with geothermal use." (Corrosion News, January 2011)
