    The impact of geothermal resources on the competitiveness of municipalities: evidence from Poland

    Analytical Hierarchy Process - Endogenous local growth - Geothermal resource - Municipality competitiveness - Panel model regression

    In addition to large-scale environmental benefits, geothermal resources are nowadays expected to deliver an endogenous competitive advantage. The aim of this paper is to investigate this phenomenon for Poland. Since geothermal resources are of an endogenous nature, we assume their competitive advantage character for eleven selected municipalities in Poland. A municipality competitiveness model is built using an expert method. Panel data analysis is used to estimate four models of geothermal competitiveness. A sensitive analysis examines if the results are dependent on the model we developed. All four model scenarios are robust. The results show that the geothermal estimators significantly impact the created municipality competitiveness indicator. The geothermal energy production and geothermal bathing centres are both significant elements of municipality competitiveness in Poland. Therefore, this paper provides an argument for further expansion of the extraction of the available geothermal resources in Poland.

    Geothermal spas as a local development factor, the case of Poland
    Kurek, Katarzyna A. ; Heijman, Wim ; Ophem, Johan van; Gędek, Stanisław ; Strojny, Jacek - \ 2020

    Geothermal resources - Local development - Poland - Principal Component Analysis - Spas - Switching regression model

    This paper investigates whether the endogenous geothermal energy resources used for local tourism facilities are a factor of local development. We answer this research question by examining the local socioeconomic development dynamics in years 1995–2015 in the six selected Polish municipalities that established geothermal spas at different years. A model introduces the concept of switch variables, where a geothermal spa is the assumed switching factor in a municipality's socioeconomic development. The statistical procedures are adopted from factor analysis and trend estimation methodologies. Our conclusions lead to a positive assessment of a geothermal water park's contribution to a municipality's socioeconomic development.
