The role of subsurface research labs in delivering net zero: realising the potential of UKGEOS
February 3 @ 8:00 am - February 4 @ 5:00 pm
A range of energy resources, infrastructures and technologies are likely to be required as part of the transition to a low-carbon energy system and net zero. Many of these resources are likely to have impacts on, or implications for, the subsurface.
Against this background, the purpose of the new £31 million UK Geo-energy Observatories (UKGEOS) is to facilitate research that improves understanding of subsurface energy developments, mass and energy transfer in coupled systems, their impacts on the subsurface and surface, and consequently their interactions with the wider energy system.
The conference will bring together scientists from the UK and across the globe to talk about their experience with subsurface facilities, to examine the capacity of the UKGEOS facilities, to develop and stimulate research directions, to link these to decarbonisation policy and regulation, and to stimulate international collaboration in geo-energy.
