National Geothermal Resource Assessment Report

09 Apr 2014

This current report has assessed a new untapped stream of renewable energy which is the Geothermal energy. In contrary to other renewable energy technologies, geothermal energy delivers constant and reliable power not subjected to variations of the meteorological conditions. Geothermal energy is also considered as unlimited and produces almost no CO2 emissions.

The geothermal resources have been assessed by collecting all the relevant geological, hydrogeological, structural and thermal information available for Lebanon and developing a 3D geological and geothermal model of Lebanon to calculate the
temperature in the deep underground of Lebanon and the geothermal potential.
