More info

There are many natural hot springs in the Reykjanes Peninsula, a volcanic region in Iceland. The Blue Lagoon (or Bláa Lónid) is an artificial lake which water supply comes from the excess water pumped by the Svartsengi geothermal power station. The water 1.2 miles (2.000 meters) below the ground is heated to 464°F (240 °C) by the molten magma and has a temperature of 158°F (70 °C) when it reaches the surface where it is used to heat neighboring towns. The lagoon’s color is the result of a mineral mixture of silica. The Blue Lagoon’s hot water (about 104°F or 40 °C) is rich in minerals and is known for its curative powers (skin illnesses). Geothermal energy is a relatively recent source of renewable energy that is clean and not very expensive and it is increasingly being exploited. In 1960, only 25 percent of Icelanders benefited from this source of heat. It now covers the heating needs of 87 percent of 319 thousand Icelanders and produces 26 percent of the electricity that is consumed. On a global scale, about ten countries produce geothermal electricity; the number one producer is the USA, which generates 3.100 MW, followed by the Philippines with 1.900 MW and Indonesia with 1.200 MW.
