Abstract [en]

The EGU General Assembly 2016 was held under the conference theme “Active Planet” from 16-22 April 2016 in Vienna, Austria. The program consisted of 619 unique scientific sessions and 321 side events. A total of 16,300 contributions were presented in the form of posters (64%), oral presentations (30%) and interactive content (PICO, 6%). The 13,650 participants originate from 109 countries, of which the majority were early career scientists (53%) and students (25%). Over the last decade, EGU has expanded in terms of number of scientific contributions (62% increase) and number of participants (57% increase).

The scientific program of the Division Energy, Resources & the Environment (ERE) was organized around six main groups of sessions: (1) integrated studies, (2) impact of energy and resource exploitation on the environment, (3) non-carbon based energy, (4) carbon based energy, (5) geo-storage for a sustainable future, and (6) geo-materials from natural resources. The division hosted 19 sessions and co-organized further 13 with others. In total, 458 presentations came from ERE, corresponding to almost 3% of all contributions of the EGU General Assembly 2016.

This special issue presents some of the current and coming applied research topics within the fields of energy, resources and the environment, and also documents the ERE activities at the recent EGU General Assembly. Below, a brief description of the scientific program [1] is given, sorted with respect to the six main groups of sessions. Comparable overview issues were published in Energy Procedia in previous years [2-4].
