Geosciences for the Energy System Transition

Modelling of sub-surface convection cells in the Rhine Graben indicates where fluid and heat circulation are likely to occur. 

The Interdisciplinary Thematic Institute for Geosciences for the Energy System Transition – ITI GeoT – is a multi-disciplinary research and training initiative that focuses on the role of deep groundwater in the renewable georesource sector.

We use geoscience, computer science, engineering, and social science approaches to address questions around geothermal energy production, hydrogen and lithium production, heat storage, carbon sequestration, and other emerging renewable energy topics. 

The ITI GeoT is hosted by the University of Strasbourg, in partnership with the CNRS. It is funded through the “Beyond Borders” Excellence Initiative and the University of Strasbourg’s SFRI STRAT’US initiative.

Geosciences for the Energy Systems Transition: An exciting evolution of the LabEx GP

On January 7th, the University of Strasbourg announced the selection of 15 laureates of the Initiative for Excellence's "Breaking Boundaries" programme. This programme, co-directed by the Université of Strasbourg, the CNRS, and Inserm, funds Interdisciplinary Thematic Institutes (ITI) that aim to promote research and training in an interdisciplinary university environment. Among the laureates is EOST's ITI Geosciences for the Energy Systems Transition: Exploiting Deep Groundwater (GeoT), the evolution of the LabEx G-eau-thermie Profonde.
