Geothermal resources (as part of “mineral resources”) belong to the State. The use of geothermal sources by natural persons or legal entities is made in accordance with the provisions of the concession law of that country. In the case study countries, the competent authority for the management of concessions for geothermal resources is the Mining Authority or the Water Management Directorate.
