A hydrothermal resource is a geothermal resource that often involves fluid, heat, and permeability for electricity generation. These geothermal systems can occur in diverse geologic settings, sometimes without clear surface manifestations of the underlying resource. Low-temperature geothermal energy is defined as heat obtained from the geothermal fluid in the ground at temperatures of 300¡F (150¡C) or less. Low-temperature resources can be harnessed to generate electricity using binary cycle electricity generating technology.
