GeoEnergy Transition Training

Training aimed at both individuals and organizations for the net-zero carbon energy transition.

What is the GeoEnergy Transition?

The application of geoscience to achieve a net-zero energy system

  • Fossil fuels remain important for now, but there is a recognized need for transition to a zero-carbon economy.
  • Transition means developing new sources of energy production.
  • Deployment of new routes for energy and the associated investment decisions will need new expertise and new workflows.
  • Utilizing expertise in geoscience, GeoLogica is developing training and advisory services to support delivery of this new energy economy.

What is the Vision?

  • GeoLogica looks to a new era of energy and the wealth of skill sets required.
  • Professional expertise and shared understanding across sectors are crucial to the GeoEnergy Transition.
  • Policy makers, planners, financiers, geoscientists and engineers, as well as the general public, all have to work together. Detailed case studies are used as a basis for learning how to achieve this.
  • Allowing organizations and individuals to take on new energy challenges in real projects – this is the GeoLogica goal.
  • Knowing the right questions to ask and when to seek expert advice is key – GeoLogica training guides this process.
  • Without abandoning the present, GeoLogica is providing for the energy future.

Why does the Geoscience matter?

  • Geoscientists and engineers drive technologies that significantly reduce carbon emissions.​
  • Subsurface workflows and resources are pivotal to many aspects of the energy transition, including critical minerals, geothermal energy and carbon storage.
  • Renewable energy innovations depend on materials sourced from the subsurface, subject to rapidly changing supply and demand constraints.

Who should attend?

  • Our introductory courses are for all professionals involved in energy – including finance, policy and geotechnical sectors.
  • Overview courses give a framework for subsurface projects, as well as the financial and policy elements needed to progress them​.
  • Courses on advanced geotechnical themes give geotechnical professionals the extra step required for energy transition geoscience roles.

Courses

  • Our blended learning courses involve live tutor-interactive lectures and exercises, as well as material for student self-learning.
  • The flagship GeoEnergy Transition course Subsurface context for a GeoEnergy Transition is available online as a one-day introduction, or as an expanded, multiple-module course.​
  • The one-day version provides a good introduction for non-geotechnical sector audiences.
  • On-site options can be considered – contact the team.
