Journal Article: A History Of Hot Dry Rock Geothermal Energy Systems

Abstract
This is a short history, so far as it can now be assembled, of early speculations and observations concerning the existence and origin of natural heat in the earth's crust; of some of the many methods proposed to extract and use it; and of recent investigations designed to develop and demonstrate such methods. It is probably only the preface to a much longer history-still to be written-of mankind's beneficial use of this, one of earth's oldest, most plentiful, most widespread and secure energy sources.
