Your students will use the criteria and recommendations from a report on geothermal energy to recommend locations in B.C. that would be favourable for the development of future geothermal energy sites.
Throughout the activity consider how well students:
In B.C., most of the electricity comes from BC Hydro dams. Hydroelectric generation is favourable in the province due to the many lakes, rivers, mountains and valleys in the region. The energy generated by BC Hydro is 96% clean and renewable energy.
Geothermal energy is another renewable energy source that has potential in the province. Read more at Clean Energy BC.
