Complementing the energy mix with the properties and resources of the subsurface
The subsurface can be used to produce or store energy, as well as to cut greenhouse gas emissions by storing carbon. Drawing upon its skills and R&D capacities, BRGM is seeking to explore, study and exploit the potential of the subsurface, particularly at the regional level. In this way, BRGM is promoting the implementation of economically viable systems with low environmental impact.
