A key sector contributing to this important partnership is geothermal energy — which, simply put, is power derived from the Earth’s internal heat. The most active geothermal resources are usually found along major tectonic plate boundaries where earthquakes and volcanoes are located. One of the most active geothermal areas in the world is the Ring of Fire, which is home to the Philippines and New Zealand, as well as other countries such as Japan, Indonesia, and the United States.
Leveraging what could be considered a geographical drawback, New Zealand was an early adopter in harnessing this clean and sustainable energy source and is now a world leader in geothermal below-the-ground technology. There are few geothermal
