The exploitation of geothermal energy includes electricity generation applications, heat and power cogeneration, as well as building applications. Possible applications are:
Laws 3175/2003 and 3734/2009 have created the conditions for research, exploitation and management of the country’s geothermal capacity. Furthermore, heat and power cogeneration is being developed.
The restrictions of Law 3851/2010 promote the implementation and use of geothermal energy and determine the prices of electricity produced from geothermal energy.
For more information, interested parties can contact CRES and ESEGEPE (Hellenic Association of Geothermal Energy and Alternative Energy Sources Companies). As regards the applications and the licensing procedure for large geothermal electricity generation systems, investors should contact the RAE.
