Definition of the geothermal energy. Introductory concepts and History of the geothermics. Volcanology and geothermal energy. Classification of the geothermal resources. Structure of the geothermal areas: the heat source, the reservoir, the cap rocks. Geothermal exploration: geological, geochemical, hydrogeological and geophysical methods of investigations. Deep exploratory wells. Modeling of geothermal systems. Regional geothermics and history of the geothermal resources in Italy and Latin America. Different uses of the geothermal resource. Generation of electricity (open dry steam system and closed binary cycle ORC system). Direct use of the geothermal resource: hot water (district heating), Heating and cooling systems with Ground Coupled Heat Pumps (GCHP). Direct experience at the geothermal system of Larderello.
