Geothermal energy can be used for generating electricity or can be used for direct applications. The present work is to compare the energy efficiency of two methods of geothermal energy utilization. The comparison of the two methods shows that energy efficiency is more in the case of direct use of geothermal energy. The geothermal energy utilization in case of direct use is more than in case of electricity generation by an amount 18 GWt and 252 GWt for India and world respectively.
