Geothermal explorations in the Republic of Macedonia were intensified in the 70's, during the first effects from the energetic crisis. As a result of those explorations, there were established over 50 springs with mineral and thermo-mineral water, with maximum potential of over 1400 l/s and evidenced reserves as deposit for exploitation of around 1000 l/s, with temperature higher than the mean season swings for this part of the Earth in the range 20-79 °C, accumulated quantities of geothermal power.Geologically and hydro- geologically spoken, these geothermal resources are mainly located in eastern and southeastern Macedonia, in the Bregalnica-Strumica region composed by 23 municipalities. This region, in its geological past has undergone many big tectonic changes and its composition is formed by almost every type of stones, including the youngest and oldest formations, forming hydro geothermal systems, that currently are the only ones worthwhile to be explored and exploited.
