There are three common types of geothermal power: dry steam, flash steam, and binary cycle. Dry steam is rare and uses the steam directly from the earth, flash steam pumps the hot water that naturally occurs in the earth to the surface and utilizes its steam, and binary cycle uses a secondary fluid and its vapor to power a generator.
Dry stream geothermal plants use natural steam directly from the Earth. Once the steam pocket is tapped, the steam is channeled directly into a turbine which converts the thermal energy into electrical power. (more types follow)
