Geo-Energy-Systems and Subsurface Technologies
The successful management of the energy transition is the challenge facing the entire energy sector. The intelligent use of the deep underground holds enormous potential for this, be it in the production of crude oil and natural gas as a continued substantial source of energy and basic materials, the sustainable use of natural gas and hydrogen storage, the use of geothermal potential for local heat supply, the extraction of metals in high demand worldwide such as rare earths and lithium. This unique expertise requires the continuous development and implementation of innovative ideas. We support this process by providing a platform for an independent exchange of knowledge and experience, and by addressing topics relevant to the entire energy sector through our collaborative research.
In our work, we draw on a broad industry-wide and cross-industry network of university scientists and experts who are dedicated to the use of the deep underground. In our committees, we regularly discuss current topics in the fields of oil and gas production, underground storage of natural gas, hydrogen and geothermal energy. We regularly invite to working groups, workshops and web seminars to promote knowledge exchange and dialogue within the network. With our annual DGMK Spring Conference, we offer an expert forum where science and industry can exchange information on the latest scientific and technical developments and innovations.
