In order to provide sustainable energy, e.g. wind and solar that are intermittent by nature, one has to store them in large quantities and extract afterwards. One of the ways to store the energy is underground storage, in the form of e.g. heat, compressed air, synthetic fuels, etc. Moreover, underground storage of CO2 is the only large scale way to get rid of it. Even renewable energies (like biofuel or wind turbines) are not free of carbon footprint. The goal of the course is to make the students familiar with the engineering methods for underground fluid and energy storage. The carbon dioxide underground storage is also considered. The participants will assess large scale renewable energy extraction processes, e.g., wind farms, in terms of their carbon footprint and fossil-fuel-dependency. They will also explain, evaluate, and design large scale subsurface energy storage solutions to address the problem of intermittency, for both heat and mechanical work.
