Water usage. Water usage is one of the most obvious environmental impacts of electricity generation. All thermal cycles (coal, natural gas, nuclear, geothermal, and biomass) use water as a cooling fluid to drive the thermodynamic cycles that allow electricity to be extracted from heat energy. Other energy sources such as wind and solar use water for cleaning equipment, while hydroelectricity.

Geothermal energy is heat contained below the earth's surface. Hydrothermal energy (trapped hot water or steam) is the only type of geothermal energy that has been widely developed. New technologies are being explored to use hot dry rock (accessed by drilling deep into rock), geopressured resources (pressurized brine mixed with methane) and magma.
