This chapter focuses on a source of renewable energy which could be very significant in Japan and similar geologically active zones. Geothermal energy has the advantage of heat and electricity with minimal environmental impact. Potentially the available energy exceeds human needs but there remain technical barriers to its economic exploitation on a larger scale away from the most intense sources near tectonic plate boundaries. The role of drilling and fracturing to create Enhanced (engineered) Geothermal Systems (EGS) is described together with the relevant factors for the design of geothermal energy extraction systems. The role of modelling to simulate the effects of fracturing to create flow pathways for heated water is also described.
