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 project is divided in 7 workpackages:
Workpackage 1: Environmental Impact Model and Cost Assessment
For more detailed information please contact the WP Leader mr Michael Obersteiner from IIASA.
Workpackage 2: Global Observation Systems
A review about the existing and foreseen GEOSS system in relation to WP 1.0 data needs will be performed on a compartment wise level.
Special focus is laid on the European Global Monitoring of Environment and Security (GMES) initiative and other related initiatives e.g. in the US within the NASA Applied Science Program. The consortium provides direct contact to GMES fast track services on ocean, land and atmosphere, as partners involved in these GMES fast track and pilot services GEOLAND-2, MACC, MyOCEAN are also partners of this consortium.
The objective of this work package is to give an overview of existing relevant global EO- and in-situ datasets, determine their applicability in the context of EnerGEO and assess any gaps.
For more detailed information please contact the WP Leader ms Marion Schroedter-Homscheidt from DLR.
Workpackage 3: Systems Engineering
The main objective of this WP is to develop and design the hardware and software architecture of the system based on the WP1 requirements. Main focus will be laid upon the interoperability of the system and will consider the GEOSS architecture requirements
For more detailed information please contact the WP Leader mr Thomas Blaschke from ARC.
Workpackage 4: Development of Pilots
The general objective of the work package is to prepare, perform and coordinate four pilot tests (fossil fuels, biomass, solar energy and wind) that implement the observational capacity and environmental assessment approach for the most important current and future energy resources. This will be based on the developments of WP 1, 2 and 3.
The main concept is that the different pilots should have the capability of testing the different functions of the global observation strategy for monitoring the impact of the exploitation of energy resources on the environment and demonstrate it’s viability for the most important current and future energy resources worldwide. During the testing phase, there should be iteration with the WP-s 1-3. In addition to correct bugs, iteration will promote finalizing the operational parameters, functionality and competence of the EnerGEO observational capacity.
Specific objectives include:

Workpackage 5: Implementation of Integrated Assessments and Observations
This WP aims at running the PIA for several known scenarios in order to obtain integrated assessment for each scenario. From this experience, new scenarios will be elaborated and assessed. At last, the WP will issue guidelines for an improved decision support tool. WP5 starts by implementing the integrated assessment framework and then contribute to the definition of new scenarios via the running of the PIA

Workpackage 6: Dissemination
This work package accompanies all activities throughout the lifespan of the project with different intensities.
The objective of the work package is to disseminate the project results to end-users and the research community. Central to these activities will be the objective to bring the results to the forefront of the GEO-community by feeding into the GEO-portal as an outlet. Reference will be made to up-coming developments under EC INSPIRE.

Workpackage 7: Projectmanagement
The objectives of this workpackage are
