No reason that the Swiss could produce all their electricity from Geothermal alone.

The website says that at 15 meters below surface the temperature is a constant and at about 5,000 meters the temperature is a nice hot 200 degrees C.

Drill down about 3 miles and you only get a temperature enough to cook
your chicken dinner? The Swiss are too smart for that kind of financial
foolishness. Solar panels are cheaper.

2030 maybe geothermal 800 GWh/a
http://www.bfe.admin.ch/themen/00490/00501/index.html?lang=de

But currently: 36'000 GWh/a from water
http://www.bfe.admin.ch/themen/00490/00491/index.html?lang=de

the rest (the other ca. 50%) is nuclear power or imported.
but this doesn't count the fossils used for cars, heating, etc..

problem is that climate change could reduce the amount of
available water. So this is a real threat.

Water turbines have efficacy up to 90%,

Johann Andreas Segner worked with Euler on some
of the early mathematical theories of turbine design.

On the other hand Gas turbine only 40% to 60%.

Isn't Baden Baden the geothermal in Switzerland, or is that Germany?

I guess you are confusing natural hot
springs with geothermal.

According to this website there are at least
26 of them in switzerland:

https://www.myswitzerland.com/en-ch/thermal-baths.html

I guess ice land has more of them:

http://hotpoticeland.com/

But one project in Basel (which has border France and Germany)
was suspended due to resulting seismic activity:

Damage claims arose from the largest of the events. Eventually, some 2,700 claims were processed by the project's insurer for an estimated 7 million – 9 million Swiss francs (about 6.5 million to 8.3 million U.S dollars)

Also Baden-Baden is a city in Germany, and not in Switzerland:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baden-Baden

In Switzerland there is only a different city called Baden,
which has also thermal, but is more known for Brown Bovery & Cie
est 1891 (now ABB since 1988), which made a lot of turbines:

Jan suggests harnessing tsunamis for Switzerland, whereas Burse is more reasonable with lakes.

I'm against such actions but I can understand people's frustration with
the constant tsunami of your nonsensical posts.

(Cone, cylinder, points, tables same format as previously)

cone x^2+y^2=z^2
plane 1/4x+1/8=z

Points of intersection of the cylinder and plane.
x,-y,y,z
-1.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, -0.125000

Hey Qbwr, I am sure the Swiss thank you for that hint

But only a day or two ago, when calculations again and again and again
showed that your "intersections of cones and planes is never an ellipse"
was false and demolished your claim that you have screeched for years,
you tried to dismiss all this with "calculations, but no logic, where
is the logic?"

No, no, no, do not hire Qbwr in the new burgeoning Geothermal Industry, for the fool cannot even tell a oval apart from a ellipse. The fool will think geothermal comes out of the sky, not the ground.
