From space to (sub)surface: How satellite data can contribute to a successful energy transition

Reda Meftahi (Survey Intelligence & Analytics B.V.)

Large scale energy storage in underground reservoirs is key to the energy transition, but associated geo-hazards are significant. Whatever operations in the subsurface, the possible impact on the infrastructure and the environment must be critically examined. To understand the human interaction with deeper geological structures and guarantee the safety of industrial operations we need to model future ground movements. In this talk Reda will demonstrate how satellite data can be used to provide a cost-effective real-time monitoring solution to measure the impact of underground activities.
