Geothermal energy - usage

In this context, we mean deep geothermal energy, which provides temperatures well above 100 degrees, which are suitable for driving turbines.
Geothermal systems are currently designed for base load and continuous operation. For interaction with wind and solar plants, this way of operating geothermal systems is not suitable. Instead, geothermal power plants need demand-driven and produce electricity intermittently.

Percentage of electricity generation, taking into account the efficiency of electricity generation
The percentage of electricity generated from geothermal (of total energy from geothermal) can be adjusted.

Similarly, the efficiency in generating electricity by geothermal can be adjusted. Because of the relatively low temperature of the heat carrier, the efficiency is much lower than those of steam turbines in fossil power plants.
