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.

Who are the GeoEnergy Transition Team?

  • Our team are renowned experts in technical geoscience, logistics and integrated business systems.
  • We are constantly engaging with world-ranked geoscience professionals in our UK and US hubs, and all around the globe​.
  • We engage thought leaders of international repute in geoscience advisory and training services.
  • You can find out more about the team here, on our dedicated team page.

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.


Our programme consists of courses focused on the geoscience behind the energy transition, from geothermal and carbon capture, to critical minerals and socio-economic implications. Our flagship course, Fundamentals for the GeoEnergy Transition, is available as five on-line sessions and covers the full range of geoenergy issues, including climate science, technologies and geology for energy transition. The one-day version provides a good introduction for non-geotechnical audiences.

We will be launching a further round of courses to include subject matters such as the science and policy of climate change, as well as socio-economic issues, such as planning and finance.

Our approach to blended learning is currently centred around live online courses with tutor-led lectures and exercises, but we plan to offer face-to-face teaching and field courses as soon as Covid rules allow. In the meantime, we are able to run exclusive classroom training for your team at your place of work, on-site at your university campus, or in the field, should you require this. Contact us for more information.
