Country Update: No report on the use of geothermal resources was made available for WGC2015. Personal communication with Urbani (2014) indicated that there has been no change since 2005. Thus, the figures of 0.7 MWt and 14 TJ/yr are estimated for several small spas in use (Lund, et al., 2005).

No report was filed on the utilization in this country; however, based on a report by Urbani, (1999), Lund and Freeston (2001) estimated 0.7 MWt and 14 TJ/yr for several small spas.

No report on the use of geothermal resources was made available for WGC2010. Personal communication with Urbani (2009) indicated that there has been no change since 2005. Thus, the figures of 0.7 MWt and 14 TJ/yr estimated for several small spas is used.
