The environmental impact of geothermal energy development may be less intense or widespread than that of some other energy sources; however, it is the first example of a number of emerging energy technologies that must be dealt with by EPA. The report discusses the regulatory approaches and the potential problems that geothermal energy may present in the areas of air quality, water quality, and other impacts.
