Geothermal Energy in Colombia

The Colombian range of volcanic mountains contains a remarkable regional thermal anomaly. Evidence of this anomaly are the extended periods of magmatic activity and the existence of numerous active and recently active volcanoes.

Surface manifestations (hot springs, hydrothermal eruption craters, steam vents, etc.) suggest that there is a high probably of the occurrence of hydrothermal systems related to these potential heat sources.

Until now, geothermal resources have been applied in Colombia only for direct use of hot spring water for swimming and bathing in about 38 spas from 27 localities.
