The Laboratory of Excellence (LabEx) G-eau-thermie Profonde is a joint academic-industry initiative dedicated to deep geothermal energy research. We use earth and social sciences to understand this renewable energy resource.

Congratulations Dr. Azzola!

Jérôme Azzola successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled "Non-standard monitoring of deep geothermal reservoirs" on May 14, 2020.

Geosciences for the Energy Systems Transition: An exciting evolution of the LabEx GP

On January 7th, the University of Strasbourg announced the selection of 15 laureates of the Initiative for Excellence's "Breaking Boundaries" programme. This programme, co-directed by the Université of Strasbourg, the CNRS, and Inserm, funds Interdisciplinary Thematic Institutes (ITI) that aim to promote research and training in an interdisciplinary university environment. Among the laureates is EOST's ITI Geosciences for the Energy Systems Transition: Exploiting Deep Groundwater (G-eau-TE), the evolution of the LabEx G-eau-thermie Profonde.

Understanding fracture zones: An interview with PhD candidate Carole Glaas

An interview with Carole Glaas, PhD candidate at IPGS and ÉS Géothermie Since December 2017, Carole Glaas has been interested in the permeability of geothermal reservoirs to understand how they increase reservoir productivity. With a new, simple, fast, and economical method, she is able to characterise the alteration of granites in fracture zones. She is doing her thesis largely at ÉS, thanks to the CIFRE funding framework.
