2nd International Conference on Energy Geotechnics

2nd International Conference on Energy Geotechnics


With ever increasing energy demand and related climate change implications, the development of sustainable energy systems based on integrated schemes of energy production, transport, transfer, and storage is an important challenge to society. The broad and emerging area of Energy Geotechnics has the potential to address this challenge from multiple perspectives. Energy Geotechnics integrates concepts from geotechnical engineering and geomechanics with cross-disciplinary collaborations with geology, hydrology, geophysics, geochemistry, petroleum engineering, and energy policy.

Building upon the 1st International Conference on Energy Geotechnics held in Kiel, Germany, this conference will provide a platform for interaction, communication, and technology transfer for academic and non-academic parties, including researchers and practitioners, in the broad areas within Energy Geotechnics.

The San Diego area offers various research institutions, government organizations, and companies in the Energy Geotechnics field and is an excellent location for international research exchange. It is a very convenient place to travel with favorable weather.
