Geothermal Country Notes
Albania possesses a large low-enthalpy geothermal resource located in three zones. The largest, Kruja, extends from the Adriatic Sea in the north southwards into northwestern Greece. Of the other two zones, Peshkopia lies in the northeast of the country and Ardenica in the coastal area.
The direct use of the available resource has been recognised and utilised for many centuries. Hot springs, often for recreational purposes, have also been incorporated into spa clinics, many as balneological centres. However, possibilities exist for the resource to be used for space heating and heat pumps.
