Energy Geotechnics Symposium 2019 - Mechanics of the Energy Transition

Energy Geotechnics Symposium 2019 - Mechanics of the Energy Transition


The symposium “Energy Geotechnics: Mechanics of the energy transition” will be held on October 3rd, 2019 in the Science Centre of Delft University of Technology. The energy transition is without doubt one of the most important challenges Dutch and international society faces in the coming decades.  The initiative for the symposium has been taken in order to give science and practice an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences on this topic. The focus is on the geotechnical and geomechanical aspects of renewable energy production, distribution and storage.

This symposium has been organised under the auspices of the ISSMGE Technical Committee TC308 and Kivi Geotechnics. 

The keynote speakers for this event are:

  • Remco de Boer (Journalist and broadcaster, Studio Energy) - Energy geotechnics and the energy transition
  • Dave Potts (Professor, Imperial College London) - Thermo mechanical geotechnical engineering
  • Stefan Baisch (Managing Director, Q-con) - Induced seismicity in geothermal energy projects

The main language of the symposium is English.
