Prospects for Development of Geothermal Energy in Lviv Region

The data of geological exploration works carried out in Lviv region allow us to speak about the significant energy potential of geothermal waters in this region. At present, six bore-wells have been discovered in which the temperature of geothermal waters reaches 120oC at a depth of more than 3000 m. However, today the energy potential of geothermal waters of Lviv region is not used for both technical and economic reasons.

ENERGY POTENTIAL OF CROP WASTE IN HEAT SUPPLY SYSTEMS

One of the most promising components of Ukraine's renewable energy is bioenergy. It is based on the use of biomass, which is the raw material for the production of solid, liquid and gaseous fuels. Biomass includes agricultural waste and residues, wood waste in the forestry, woodworking and pulp and paper industries, energy crops, organic part of industrial and household waste. Ukraine possesses large areas of land resources, has favorable soil and climatic conditions and developed agriculture, so it can successfully develop bioenergy based on plant biomass.
