Hydro Geothermal Energy Possibilities, Exploration and Future Prospects in Dukaghini Basin, Kosovo

Session

Energy Efficiency Engineering

Description

The thermo mineral waters and groundwater of shallow in the Dukagjini Basin in Kosovo have been known since the ancient period. That occur in different tectonic zones and faults in the Inner Dinarides. The zone covers high Carbonate rocks masses has varied geology that ranges in age from the Neo-Protorozoic to the Holocene. The geology is characterized by substantial structural features on regional scale, including normal featuring and thrusting. Triassic formations have a considerable extension in the north and northwest part of Dukagjini lowland.Bearing in mind the properties of thermal-mineral and ground waters in shallow the paper deals with possibilities of their use of geothermal energy of low enthalpy as a renewable resource. The paper analyses the way of use of thermo minerals waters in three spasand ground waters in shallow in Dukagjini Basin.The results hinted that the possibility of direct use of geothermal energy is a domestic resource which contributes to energy security and decreases the trade deficit by displacing imported fuels. It is also environmentally advantageous energy source which produces far less air pollution than fossil–fuel sources, an important contribution of living and new work in local communities.
