Our team working in the field of geoenergy focus on fundamental and applied research related to subsurface energy extraction, energy storage, and critical minerals recovery. Of particular interest are technologies that improve recovery, provide new insights into the production of transition fuels, and facilitate the future energy landscape.

Traditional knowledge and expertise in petroleum and mining engineering will drive new technologies related to subsurface energy extraction, geological storage of CO2 and hydrogen, and extraction of critical minerals for future energy technologies. These new technologies will redefine the traditional petroleum and mining engineering disciplines and provide new opportunities for novel research, fundamental insights, and ground-breaking technological innovations. We have three main themes within our geoenergy flagship.
