A collaborative project aimed at developing Earth Observation strategies for monitoring and prediction of environmental impacts from energy resource extraction, transportation and exploitation



The objective of EnerGEO will be to develop a global observation strategy for monitoring the impact of the exploitation of energy resources on the environment and demonstrate it in various pilot projects for a variety of energy resources worldwide. The global observation strategy will be designed to appropriately assess the effects of current and future transitions in energy-use (magnitude and resource) on environmental impact.

The relative abundance of different energy resources will be mapped and evaluated, based on existing literature: fossil fuels, wind, ocean, solar, hydro, biomass, nuclear, geothermal.
