GeoEn – Joint Research Project on GeoEnergy Research

The project GeoEn is coordinated within section 6.1 basin modelling. It is sponsored in the framework of "The BMBF Innovation Initiative for the New German Länder" as a joint project between University of Potsdam, Brandenburg University of Technology and Helmholtz Centre Potsdam German Research Centre for Geosciences GFZ.

The joint research project Geoenergy - GeoEn - concentrates on the examination of four relevant core themes which engage in the climate friendly and sustainable energy supply in the future: CO2 capture and transport, CO2 storage, shale gas (unconventional geo-resource) and geothermal energy.

The core themes are worked on in the cross-cutting fields of geoenergy research, including the process modelling.

Section 6.1 in cooperation with the University Potsdam work on the following issues in the framework of GeoEn:

  • Methodical development of regional numerical modelling of the coupled fluid flow and heat transport in North Germany: UP/GFZ: M. Scheck-Wenderoth
