With ever increasing energy demand and related climate change implications, the development of sustainable energy systems based on integrated schemes of energy production, transport, transfer, and storage is an important challenge to society. The broad and emerging area of Energy Geotechnics has the potential to address this challenge from multiple perspectives by integrating concepts from geotechnical engineering and geomechanics with cross-disciplinary concepts from geology, hydrology,

The 2nd International Conference on Energy Geotechnics is organized by the members of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) Technical Committee 308 on Energy Geotechnics, and is the main international venue for interaction, communication, and technology transfer for academic and non-academic parties, including researchers and practitioners, in the broad areas within Energy Geotechnics
