The AAPG-EMD connections have evolved out of a long history of oil and gas development, which have further expanded into the need to develop the science of geology to support the exploration and development for a variety of new energy resources, whether they be carbon-based, nuclear-based, or consist of energy available in the environment, both now and in the foreseeable future.

EMD focuses on the unconventional hydrocarbons (including coalbed methane, gas hydrates, shale gas & liquids, oil shale, and oil sands, tight gas sands, and on the so-called alternative energy resources of coal, uranium (and nuclear minerals), geothermal energy, more recently monitoring of the renewable energy resources - such as wind, solar, tidal, etc. Additional concerns of the Division are the on energy economics and technology.
