The idea of the DTE Deep Thermal Powerplant is based on a closed water steam cycle, with which the heat in the bedrocks can be made accessible. Cold water is injected into the deep shaft and piped through the horizontal wells into the pipeline system and through the heat exchanger. Turbines convert the evaporated water into energy.
