There is an infinite source of energy under our feet, whether it is a few miles underground or on the ground surface in locations such as Hawaii. The question was, until now, how to harness it expediently and efficiently. The presented methodology capitalizes on our planet’s natural internal heat. The essence of Scientific Geothermal Technology is transferring heat from heat sources to power units with completely closed-loop systems. The Self Contained In-Ground Geothermal Generator (SCI-GGG) system uses several completely closed-loop systems and generates electricity down at the heat source and transmits it up to the ground level by using electrical cables. The SCI-GGG apparatus consists of a boiler; a turbine; a converter; a generator; a condenser distributor; and a condenser that is arranged to function in confined spaces such as in a wellbore. The SCI-GGGG absorbs heat from the heat source (hot rocks, lava, geothermal reservoir, geysers, etc.) and generates electricity at the heat source which is then transmitted by cable up to the ground surface to electrical grids for use in houses and industry. In the process of cooling the engine compartments with a separate closed-loop system which is the Self-Contained In-Ground Heat Exchanger (SCI-GHE system) additional electricity is generated on the ground surface. The Self Contained In-Ground Heat Exchanger (SCI-GHE) system is an integral part of the SCI-GGG system and can function independently. The system consists of a closed-loop thermally insulated line with 2 coiled pipes (heat exchangers) with at least one “In-Line-Pump”. The first heat exchanger is lowered at the heat source and the second heat exchanger is coupled to the evaporator of a binary power unit on the ground surface which produces electricity by using the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC).
