The earth is anything but devoid of energy. In fact, we are surrounded each and every day by an abundant amount of energy. The sun constantly sends energy right to the Earths surface. The planet’s mantle writhes can reach temperatures as high as 4,000 degrees Celcius, and there is a limitless supply of gravity everywhere.
Some of this energy is captured and used, but the majority of it goes to waste. There are only so many places that utilize (and can even afford) expensive solar panels. Even rarer geothermal installations use the Earths natural heat to generate power, and hydroelectric plants take advantage of the energy gravity has to offer.
