The paper includes the results of estimation of accessible resources of geothermal heat in Poland and comparison of estimations of energy made after 1985 according to the methodology used in Poland, prepared by J. Sokołowska and J. Sokołowski, and ways of calculations approved in EU. All the data presented have been verified by the latest results issued by German government. After the analysis of resources and geoenergetic potential of Poland, which is based on many years' research and comparison with other countries in Europe, we can state that Poland has the biggest geothermal resources. A real technical energetic potential of geothermal waters to a depth of 3,000 m, which can be used in practice, is almost 200 times bigger than energy demand in Poland. According to the result of investigations and analysis it can be said that Poland can certainly be in a short time energy independent due to geothermal resources.
