Geothermal sources in the Republic of Kosovo

Session

Civil Engineering, Infrastructure and Environment

Description

Power supply is one the main challenge for sustainable development. Dealing with it requires a rational utilization of energy resources. Geological-lithological construction of the territory of the Republic of Kosovo enabled the formation of a large number of geothermal resources, which represent hot water springs occurring in different layers of the land, which are potential for future development. The aim of the paper is to show some features of geothermal resources as well as their potential as exploitation and economic valorization opportunity. Geothermal resources are characterized by favourable indicators, both form their potential and from spatial distribution in the territory of Kosovo. Water flows variate from 2 l/s to over 120 l/s, while their temperature variates from 15 ºC to over 80 ºC etc. The energy used by these sources so far is on a low level.

Power supply is one the main challenge for sustainable development. Dealing with it requires a rational utilization of energy resources. Geological-lithological construction of the territory of the Republic of Kosovo enabled the formation of a large number of geothermal resources, which represent hot water springs occurring in different layers of the land, which are potential for future development. The aim of the paper is to show some features of geothermal resources as well as their potential as exploitation and economic valorization opportunity. Geothermal resources are characterized by favourable indicators, both form their potential and from spatial distribution in the territory of Kosovo.
