I am really desperate knowing about geothermal energy. Can you help me?
How do we harness geothermal energy? What is the current supply left for this energy source?

Energy Department to invest up to $84 million in enhanced geothermal systems
U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar announced that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued two Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) for enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). EGS technologies can be used to create new "engineered" geothermal reservoirs or to stimulate existing geothermal reservoirs that are underperforming. Together, the FOAs offer up to $84 million over six years, including $20 million in fiscal year 2009, however future funding is subject to congressional appropriations.
