Energy Geography Conference

The Energy and Environment Specialty Group (EESG) of the American Association of Geographers (AAG) is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Energy Geography Conference, to be held virtually on Saturday, January 20th, 2024 from 11am-3pm ET. This half-day event will include paper presentations and keynote talks on research and practice related to energy geography. The theme of this year’s conference will be advancing equitable decarbonization.


The conference will feature an opening keynote address delivered by Emily Yeh, Professor at University of Colorado, and a closing keynote address delivered by Gary Langham, Executive Director of the Association of American Geographers.

The Energy Geography Conference welcomes everyone from undergraduate students to late-career energy geographers (broadly defined). Building on the strengths of the EESG, we intend for this to be a welcoming, inclusive, and friendly space where we can meet, engage, share ideas, collaborate, and build community. In light of the intended interactive nature of this preconference, we have a number of different events transpiring throughout the day, including keynote addresses and research presentations, paper workshops, project workshops and professional workshops. We kindly ask that participants engage throughout the workshop and submit their presentation or workshop materials in advance of the conference. 

Time: Saturday, January 20th, 2024 from 11am - 3pm ET  |  10am – 2pm CT  |  8am – 12pm PT
