Technical Communities

Hydrogen and Energy Storage

The EAGE Hydrogen and Energy Storage community (HESTC) is a network of members interested in sharing knowledge and developing skills among geoscientists and engineers working in Hydrogen and Energy Storage analysis, strategies, and technologies. This group is open to members in all stages of their career and counts on links with the student community.

The rapidly evolving Hydrogen and Energy Storage sector plays a vital role in addressing the challenges of rising energy demand, intermittent renewable power generation and the requirement to reduce global GHG emissions. The full range of energy storage technologies will be included within the remit of the community: Electrochemical, Chemical, Thermal and Mechanical.

We are also interested in discussions and contributions covering the broader elements of natural hydrogen systems, stimulated geological hydrogen production, policy, and emerging energy value chains.

The HESTC’s activities will be instrumental in providing EAGE members with current insights, perspectives and the latest technical developments within the Hydrogen and Energy Storage discipline.

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.

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.
