Geothermal energy is an unconventional renewable energy source with enormous potential for exploitation, of which only a very small part is currently used today.
Worldwide, countries with a high geothermal potential are Iceland, New Zealand and in Europe there are Hungary, Romania and Serbia. In these countries, as well as in many others, there are geological conditions that allow to geothermal phenomena to manifest on the surface of the Earth. The limited exploitation of this energy resource is still limited by existing technologies and by the high cost of deep-water equipment.
For a good image of the Romania's geothermal potential, we present, in our paper, the temperature map at 3000 m deep and the geothermal flow map on the surface.
These maps made with the Surfer program, based on the data presented on geophysical portal on the WEB page of the Geological Institute of Romania.
