Journal Article: Geothermal Situation In Greece

Exploration for geothermal resources in Greece started in 1970. The Institute of Geology and Mineral Exploration (IGME) was responsible for implementing the exploration programme. Initially the programme covered areas considered to contain high enthalpy resources, and was financed by the State and Public Power Corporation (PPC). During the last eight years, following on the energy crisis, the programme has been extended to the medium and mainly low enthalpy fields. At the same time as PPC launched an exploitation and power-station programme, the Banks for Industrial and Agriculture Development, as well as national and local authorities and private enterprise started a programme for exploitation of low enthalpy resources.
