Facts and figures

The International Energy Agency has estimated that global primary energy demand will increase by 40 – 50% from 2003 to 2030 (IEA).

The EnerGEO project consists of 12 partners from 6 countries and  has a duration of 4 years. The project started 1November 2009


The main objective of the EnerGEO project is to develop a global observation strategy for monitoring and prediction the impact of the exploitation of energy resources on the environment and to demonstrate this strategy for a variety of energy resources.

In order to achieve these goals the EnerGEO-project has been structured according to the following topics:

  • Linking Energy Use and Environmental Impact by making use of state of the art environmental, energy and scenario models.
  • Collecting the necessary datasets and deriving indicators from them by connecting to current GEO-contributions and state-of-the-art in-situ global networks
  • Testing the EnerGEO -concept through dedicated pilots making our approach viable and supportive
  • Enabling the collection of and access to EnerGEO -data by building a portal within the context of GEO and based on GEO-ADC-recommendations
  • From Pilot-scale to Global Scale enabling to run global scenarios on energy use and environmental impact




This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 226364
