Geological sequestration of carbon dioxide (CO2) is believed to be an effective measure to combat the anthropologically induced climate change and increase in atmospheric temperature. How can Switzerland play a role in this long-term effort? What is the real potential of the Swiss subsurface to permanently store CO2 or employ this gas in electricity production? The Geo-Energy, Reservoir Geology & Basin Analysis Group from the University of Geneva is working on this topic within the SCCER-SoE in the context of the ELEGANCY project funded by the European Commission.
