Underground Sun Conversion - Start

Energy Institute at the Johannes Kepler University Linz

The Energy Institute at the JKU Linz is responsible for the techno-economic, ecological and legal analyzes as well as for the survey of the technology potential in the project Underground Sun.Conversion: Through the techno-economic evaluation of the system, the process costs can be analyzed and predicted and compared with relevant benchmarks ; this is a comprehensive analysis involving learning curves and economies of scale of the system.

In addition, national and international locations for the potential implementation of the technology are identified. Furthermore, Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) are used to investigate the environmental impact. Moreover, as explained above, screening and analysis of the legal dimensions of the system are performed.
