Our research aims at the safe, efficient and sustainable use of geothermal energy. It is structured in four research clusters along the EGS process chain:
Research in the Topic "Geothermal Energy Systems"
Central research goals are:
- Reliable exploration and minimization of the mining risk
- Effektive, predictable and safe reservoir development
- Efficiency and economy
- Minimization of environmental impacts and sytematic quality assurance
- Security of supply and effective system integration
We work on these topics to achieve the sustainable use of geothermal energy and to boost public confidence in geothermal energy. In this context, the proposed geoscientific underground laboratory GeoLaB was developed.
In addition to the thematic interfaces, the clusters are interlinked by methodological cross-cutting issues, such as numerical modeling.
