Geothermal is a renewable energy that uses the heat of the subsoil to generate electricity and/or heat. Central America is located within the denominated "Pacific Rim" and as a result of this position of geologic-tectonic type, in the region a volcanic belt exists, which has molded the topography and permitted the use of such renewable energy. Currently, the EEP has developed several geothermal projects with very innovative industrial applications, using this resource in the dehydration of fruits and vegetables, in companies where women are the main human resource. This is a very profitable and clean application. Another project of geothermal application is complementary to a project to produce biodiesel, which has reduced their cost and production time. The results demonstrate that the use of this resource saves thermal energy, which is transformed to an increased profitability and reduced processing time, providing increased efficiency to companies.
