The Energy Geoscience Conference

Powering the Energy Transition through Subsurface Collaboration

11 April 2023

After several years of planning, we are now on the doorstep of inaugurating the new Energy Geoscience Conference – EGC1 – jointly organised by the Geological Society and the Geoscience Energy Society of Great Britain.

Running from 16 to 18 May in Aberdeen, UK, this ambitious new geoscience conference series, intended to run every five to six years, has a broad but in-depth programme of some 160 talks and 70 posters. The depth of the technical programme is such that, in effect, multiple conferences are running in four parallel sessions, whilst exploring geoscience links, overlaps and commonality between existing and emerging subsurface applications that will be key to the energy transition.

Energy geoscientists researching and working in fields including lower-carbon petroleum exploration/production, hydrogen/helium/lithium exploration, carbon and energy storage, wind farm siting, geothermal energy and nuclear waste sequestration will find leading edge science from industry and academia alongside productive learning and networking opportunities across overlapping industries.

On top of the scientific programme, we are delighted to confirm our plenary speakers:

  • Professor Gideon Henderson, Chief Scientific Adviser DEFRA
  • Professor Lorraine Whitmarsh, Director of the Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformations, University of Bath
  • Dr Karen Hanghøj, Director of the British Geological Survey

In addition to the optional programme of local field trips and core workshops on carbon storage and injectite reservoirs, the conference features daily ‘Future Outlook’ lunchtime talks and panel discussions/debates under the heading ‘Net Zero Challenges’.

This is one conference not to miss!
