Geosciences and the Energy Transition: Resources on a Finite Planet

The third of a series of webinars and meetings to assess and highlight the role of Geosciences in the Energy Transition (ET). Three webinars are being held in 2021 leading to a Discussion Meeting on the Energy Transition in April 2022.
This third event is focused on strategic minerals, hydrocarbons and responsible recovery and the need for future technologies and resource stewardship.

Series Overview and Purpose

An overview of Energy Transition and Geoscience contributions with an aim to cover science progress and achievements in critical areas, the context of geosciences in society awareness, Government policy, finance, insurance, and economic communities.

The series of meetings will provide updates and discussions on the geological science needed to underpin future energy changes and to promote the systems approach for the collaborations needed for efficient integration of geosciences into the ET.
The series of Webinars/Meetings is aimed at addressing the following questions:

1. What are the recent advances and future needs in geoscience areas critical to the Energy Transition?
2. How can Geosciences contribute more effectively to the Energy Transition?
3. What advances in Geoscience integration into societal needs and public awareness of the Energy Transition are possible?
4. How well is the Geosciences community integrated with other sciences and engineering, and how can a more multidisciplinary, systems approach be achieved?

The outcomes of the series are aimed at:
• Increased and accelerated awareness of the role, contribution and importance of the geosciences to the Energy Transition.
• Highlighting the need for rapid and robust planning and action on responsible resource usage and the use of geoscience skills in the Energy Transition. 
• Generating a platform for multi-disciplinary engagement and collaboration across the geosciences and with other sciences as a foundation for future interdisciplinary meetings/engagement on the ET.
• Publications in the online open access journal; Earth Science, Systems and Society (ES3).

Provisional Programme

Presentations on the status and review of progress on the barriers, and future needs of CCUS, geothermal/heat, hydrogen, compressed air, radioactive waste and oil/gas stewardship during the Energy Transition.
