Assessing, Characterising and Enhancing Geologic Carbon Storage and Geothermal Energy in Wales

Cluster Leader: Dr Andy Mitchell, Aberystwyth University

  • Investigates the subsurface as a locale for low carbon energy pathways specifically to characterise and enhance geologic carbon storage systems and groundwater heating systems in Wales
  • Will deliver science and technology to tackle climate change with provision of energy security and economic prosperity
  • Will be at an international scientific frontier for future low carbon economic development and deliver critical information to underpin policy development in Wales and elsewhere.
