The Geoscience
Energy Society
of Great Britain

To advance, for the public benefit, education in the scientific and technical aspects of subsurface energy and related technologies

The PESGB was established in 1964 by a group of like-minded professionals keen to create a community of geoscientists for networking and sharing ideas. Over 50 years later we have members in every element of the subsurface energy industries, and they are active in six continents.

As the result of a landmark member vote, the society changed its name to be more inclusive of the careers of the members, now and in the future, of this exciting industry.

In March 2023 the PESGB became the Geoscience Energy Society of Great Britain (GESGB). The society will gradually broaden its technical programme while continuing with the current activities. The GESGB welcomes all who work in subsurface energy related fields and is keen to explore the exciting technologies that continue to develop across the sector.

This member led organisation serves our industry by providing, networking and knowledge-sharing events, conferences, and workshops.

Though careers in ‘energy’ are constantly evolving, the GESGB aims to be relevant, useful, and beneficial to members at every stage of their careers within the ‘energy’ industry.
