The Mission of CFSES

The Center for Frontiers of Subsurface Energy Security (CFSES) is pursuing scientific understanding of multiscale, multiphysics processes to ensure safe and economically feasible storage of carbon dioxide and other byproducts of energy production without harming the environment. We have had many achievements over the history of our center. Find out more about our achievements by visiting our Highlights Page

CFSES is an Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC)

In August 2009, The Department of Energy, Office of Science Funded 46 EFRC’s with the aim of accelerating discovery science for energy technologies. CFSES is one of two EFRCs related to subsurface geosystems.
