@Ellert0 Perhaps another question might be, is it more practical to drill down in those locations or transmit power from places where we can easily tap for power?

The issue at depths beyond 5km would most likely be materials science. We might not have materials (or we might have only extremely expensive ones) that are capable of withstanding the tremendous pressure at depths like that.
