TWINNING TO SUSTAINABLE ENERGY TRANSITION

Project description

Preparing energy generation for green hydrogen

Greece is lagging behind in its transition to be carbon neutral by 2050, with a large share of power generated by natural gas (with coal at peak times) and limited carbon capture and storage. Geosciences play a fundamental role by tackling important energy transition themes through the use of underground resources, such as geological storage of hydrogen & CO2 and deep geothermal energy. This is the foundation of the proposed project. TWINN2SET consists of a capacity building & mentoring programme in the above three areas which will be complemented by an exploratory research project focusing on underground hydrogen storage, fostering interdisciplinary competencies at the interplay of a promising energy vector with subsurface reservoir characterisation, modelling and monitoring.
