    Japan has favorable sites for geothermal power because of its proximity to the Izu-Bonin-Mariana , Japan had MW of installed electric generating capacity, about 5% of the world total. Geothermal power plays a minor role in the energy sector in the country: in it supplied GWh of electricity, representing about % of the country's total electricity supply. Then, specifics of geothermal energy projects are discussed through broad considerations of geothermal energy utilization, of which geothermal heat pumps is just one type. Elements of geothermal energy systems are discussed, laying the foundation for the organization of material in this book. Remote communities that have limited or no access to the power grid commonly employ diesel generators for communal electricity provision. Nearly 65% of the overall thermal energy input of diesel generators is wasted through exhaust and other mechanical components such as water-jackets, intercoolers, aftercoolers, and friction.
