Energy Group

   At the forefront of energy geoscience...

The Petroleum Group has been a Special Interest Group of the Geological Society since 1981. The Group has always endeavoured to remain relevant to an ever-evolving industry and constantly changing geopolitical environment. We recognise it is time for our Group to take a proactive role in the wider energy transition and we have therefore taken the decision to broaden our scientific remit and become the Energy Group of the Geological Society.

Going forward, the Energy Group will encompass all geoscience aspects of the full cycle of the delivery of energy to society, including (but not limited to):

  • Petroleum
  • Carbon capture, utilisation and storage
  • Radioactive waste disposal
  • Geothermal energy
  • The role of geoscience in renewable energy sources


Fellows and Candidate Fellows of the Geological Society are welcome to join the Energy Group. Please email if you wish to join.

To receive information about Society and Energy Group activities, please indicate this in your email.

If you are not a Fellow of the Society, you are nonetheless welcome to attend Energy Group conferences. However, Geological Society Fellows can usually book at preferential rates, and it may therefore be beneficial to join the Society.
