EUROPEAN RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE ON SOLID EARTH

Objectives

WP17 Geo-Energy Test beds for Low Carbon Energy has the following main objectives:


  • Facilitate the integrated use of data, models and facilities, across geoenergy domains.
  • Provide access to observation, modelling and experimental facilities.
  • Integrate data, models and facilities from dedicated GeoEnergy Test Beds with existing monitoring facilities not necessarily dedicated to energy development.
  • Promote an integrated approach to planning the next generation of research facilities for geo-energies.
  • Online publication of monitoring data to encourage transparency and to improve public buy-in and trust.
  • Provide the scientific basis on which systems to sustainably manage subsurface geoenergy resources can be designed, and robust regulations can be developed.
  • Help to bring about a new energy system in Europe.
