Molten rock that bursts out of volcanoes may increasingly provide energy to power homes and businesses in Iceland and beyond, a recent report in the journal Geothermics suggests. The Icelandic Deep Drilling Project (IDDP) had been drilling shafts into volcanic bedrock up to 5 km (3.1 miles) deep and capturing the intense heat when, in 2009, a team struck an underground pool of magma

The world's first magma-based geothermal energy system has been built in Iceland, taking advantage of the Earth's heat to generate electricity. Regular geothermal systems are now an established science - where water is pumped deep below ground, boils, turns to steam and drives a turbine as it returns back to the surface

In 2009, a borehole drilled at Krafla, northeast Iceland, as part of the Icelandic Deep Drilling Project (IDDP), unexpectedly penetrated into magma (molten rock) at only 2100 meters depth, with a temperature of 900-1000 C. The borehole, IDDP-1, was the first in a series of wells being drilled by the IDDP in Iceland in the search for high-temperature geothermal resources
