Development of Technologies for Sensing, Analyzing, and Utilizing Novel Subsurface Signals in Support of the Subsurface Technology and Engineering (SubTER) Crosscut Initiative
Wednesday, March 09, 2016-- The DOE announced the release of a joint Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) between Fossil Energys Carbon Storage Program and Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energys Geothermal Technologies Office entitled Development of Technologies for Sensing, Analyzing, and Utilizing Novel Subsurface Signals in Support of the Subsurface Technology and Engineering (SubTER) Crosscut Initiative. The Department will provide approximately $9 million for four (4) to eight (8) RD&D projects that will 1) deploy and validate prototype carbon storage Monitoring, Verification, and Accounting (MVA) technologies in an operational field environment and 2) identify and validate new subsurface signals to characterize and image the subsurface advancing the state of knowledge in geothermal exploration. The DOE established SubTER initiative addresses the development of solutions to the technical challenges presented by the subsurface environment. The initiative is a collaboration between integrated teams composed of experts in subsurface disciplines such as characterization, drilling, manipulation and control of subsurface conditions, and monitoring. Recognizing the need to expand the research effort beyond the National Laboratory network, this FOA seeks to expand the SubTER crosscut initiative to leverage RD&D conducted by industry, academia, and other research entities. -- (full text)
