Welcome to the Institute of GeoEnergy

The Institute of GeoEnergy - IG, as the Institute of Petroleum Research - IPR was recently renamed, was founded in January 2019 and is the newest Institute of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH). At a time of energy transition towards cleaner forms of energy production, the Institute of GeoEnergy is aiming to support and actively shape the conditions for the exploitation of energy resources and their optimal and sustainable environmental management.

Environment & Circular Economy

Oriented to studying and developing methods and techniques addressing the environmental impact of the energy resources’ exploitation. It also aims at the development of materials and energy reuse technologies and the elaboration of environmental impact studies and energy exploits risk assessment.

Green Energy

Oriented to the development of innovative technologies related to the reduction of the carbon footprint of the energy mixture using hydrogen, geothermal energy, green fuels (biogas, methanol, ethanol, ammonia) and the optimization of the energy systems structure and operation.

Fossil Fuels & Carbon Management

Oriented to the research, study and development of methods and techniques for exploring geological structures suitable for the generation and production of fossil organogenic energy resources, the development of innovative methods for their production and transport, the production of conventional fuels with minimal carbon footprint and the development of technologies for carbon dioxide capture and storage.
