Special session on ENERGIZERS project (CO2-Enhanced G eothermal Systems for Climate Neutral Energy Supply)

Aims of the special session

The special session on EnerGizerS Project: CO2-Enhanced Geothermal Systems for Climate Neutral Energy Supply is a promotional event since October 2020 when it started. This session aims to present the scope and motivations of the project along with the hitherto results obtained within the successive Work Packages. Within the EnerGizerS project, the international consortium of scientists has conducted research aimed at detailed identification of potential geological structures for the location of CO2-EGS systems in Poland and Norway, combining the requirements for both Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies. The main challenge is to analyze the efficiency of EGS using supercritical carbon dioxide as a working fluid instead of commonly used water. Such a solution has attracted much interest worldwide due to the additional benefit of CO2 geological storage in the process of energy conversion. Furthermore, CO2-EGS technology can become a new sustainable source of energy, which could be essential to meet international ambitions for the mitigation of anthropogenic climate changes.
