In this paper, the main independent variables that can impact the running cost of geothermal industries are analyzed, and these analyses are aim at finding the relationship between the impacts and cost. For the first, the development situation of geothermal is deployed and some negative barriers of geothermal are listed. Then, the main barriers are defined and introduced with the lectures researches, the degrees and the reason that these barriers can make extra investment to the geothermal are analyzed. The analysis help finding a new way to solving and utilizing the ground energy and with comparison with current hydrid and steam geothermal features, ground source heat systems is proved that it indeed can help to solve the listed problems of geothermal. And the conclusion of the advantages of the new technology can be used develop geothermal in future.

Author Keywords: Geothermal development, Geothermal barriers, New solution geothermal technology, New geothermal technology methods.
