Abstract: Energy is a main factor in developing nations. Energy is almost a must for surviving with dignity. Palestine situation is different from other countries which can import their energy needs from outside. Palestinians are facing a critical shortage in energy due to Israeli Occupation. They must depend on the naturally available energy to survive in dignity and develop their lives. In this paper the scope of using geothermal energy in Palestine is taken into consideration, its availability and practical applications, as a source of renewable energy, which is identified by the reliability and sustainability. It has been found that the Palestinians should depend on their own free energy, geothermal energy has a notable role in reducing the residential energy consumption specially for the heating and cooling purposes. Geothermal energy could also be used to reduce the electrical bill that overloading the Palestinians shoulders by using low temperature geothermal water in generating electricity.
