Stephen that is only in a co-generation configuration in which they are capturing the heat of the system and putting it to work.

I think every generating system should be co-generation but doesn't always happen.
I also wondered about coupling geothermal to thermoelectric systems or stirling engines to generate electricity thus getting co-gerneration from the other direction.
