Regions
Germany

The Fraunhofer Research Institution for Energy Infrastructures and Geothermal Systems IEG carries out research in the fields of integrated energy infrastructures, geothermal energy and sector coupling for a successful energy transition at seven locations. The Fraunhofer IEG develops ideas, technologies and strategies for the next phase of the transformation of the energy systems and sees ifself as an independent pioneer in politics, economics, regulation and society. By founding Fraunhofer IEG, the Fraunhofer Society is making a significant contribution to exploiting the markets in a more targeted way for the use of geothermal energy systems, the storage of energy sources and technologies to couple the energy sectors of heat, electricity and communication.

The main topics are hydrogen, energy infrastructures and sector coupling, heat mining and storage, borehole technologies, georesources and the development of the technological components needed for this, energy technology and CO2 capture.
