About Renewables

Throughout history people have used natural energy from the sun, wind, earth and water to power their lives.

But since the discovery of hydrocarbons these have taken over as the world’s main energy source. But hydrocarbon fuels won’t last forever so we need to find other ways to power our homes, schools, businesses, activities and transport. In the search for cleaner, greener and more sustainable forms of energy, people are returning to renewable sources and developing new ways of harnessing its potential and maximising its efficiency.

Here in Aberdeen City and Shire, we have a tradition of innovation, research and energy engineering and AREG is actively encouraging local businesses to develop renewable energy solutions that can be used locally, nationally and internationally to provide a sustainable energy future for all..
