Decarbonization and Energy Transition

Technical Communities

Decarbonization and Energy Transition

The EAGE Technical Community on Decarbonization and Energy Transition started its journey on 2019 as a network of members interested in sharing knowledge and developing skills among geoscientists and engineers working with decarbonization and energy transition technologies, on both the geo-scientific and engineering aspects of surface and subsurface decarbonization, as well as in the advancement of renewables.

Since then, the interest in the DET Community has been growing steadily, demanding the group to go one step further by branching out into five specialized groups:

1. Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS)
2. Geothermal Energy
3. Wind Energy
4. Hydrogen and Energy Storage
5. Critical Minerals

These new Technical Communities will serve as dynamic hubs where members may find an engaging environment to share knowledge and connect more effectively and fruitfully with their peers.

"The link with what our industry does is obvious, and these sessions answer questions that everyone is asking about our work."

"This is a topic that should start to be part of the conversation more frequently. It is also interesting because it can enable the conversation about decarbonisation pathways from different sectors, industries, countries, by building a holistic view of what energy transition is and how to create a network for knowledge and experience sharing which can be translated into programmes and actions."

Skills for the Energy Transition

Willing to pursue a career in energy transition-related fields? Representatives from the EAGE Decarbonization and Energy Transition Communities, in collaboration with the Education Committee, have undertaken the development of a tool aimed at delineating the requisite skills for successfully navigating a career in the evolving energy landscape.

The overarching objective of the initiative is to offer a comprehensive learning path, encompassing both technical and non-technical proficiencies, thereby aiding our members in navigating their personal energy transition journeys.

In order to ensure that the insights provided by this tool align closely with the needs of our members, we would like to invite you to participate in a short survey: replies are anonymous and will help us improve the skills mapping as well as identify additional areas where geoscientists and engineers can play a role for the energy transition.

Fill in the survey


  • Contributions to EAGE events, such as the EAGE Annual (Dedicated Sessions) and GET
  • Local events and collaborations
  • News, interviews, career advice and vacancies

Curious to know all EAGE is doing around the energy transition? In our Energy Transition Hub you can find all EAGE opportunities for learning, sharing and connecting in one place.

The EAGE Resource Evaluation Committee (REvC) also contributes to our work on the energy transition by participating in the creation and review of  the CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS) and its guidelines.

SRMS and guidelines


EAGE supports “Geoscience in Action: Advancing Sustainable Development“, a report published in Spring 2023 to map the geoscience skills to the 17 UNSDGs through detailed case studies. This resources offers a practical roadmap to illustrate how geoscientists can apply their knowledge and know-how to critical challenges.

Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
