Considered here are geothermal resources of Ukraine and a new estimation is proposed based on the experience of drilling and geophysical examination of wells for oil and gas. The obtained values of geothermal resources significantly exceeded those known before, which opens broad prospects for their development in the near term using geothermal power plants (GTEU) of “pipe in pipe” type. They do not use fuel resources or emit harmful substances into the environment, and are able to provide heat and electricity in sufficient quantities for all activity of Ukrainian society.

Keywords: geothermal resources, geothermal power plant.
