Huge Potential of North American Renewables Market

North America Renewables Trade Seminar

Scotland’s worldclass energy expertise has huge potential to penetrate North America’s flourishing alternative energy market, Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) will tell members tomorrow. (WEDNESDAY, FEB 3)
The unique private-public partnership, which is committed to positioning Aberdeen City and Shire as a global leader in sustainable energy, is hosting a seminar focusing on offshore renewable energy opportunities in North America at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre. Delegates are to be given an overview of the offshore wind, wave and tidal opportunities in the US and Canada as well as advice on entering the market.
Sarah Hillyear, AREG’s international trade executive, said: “No offshore wind projects have been built in the US as yet and it is anticipated that developers will look to Scotland for its vital offshore expertise – especially as the majority of projects progressing through the development process in the US are planned for the East Coast.

“This a huge market with significant opportunities for Aberdeen City and Shire to capitalise on. With the largest concentration of upstream, offshore oil and gas capabilities in the world outwith Houston, the region is uniquely positioned and has the necessary expertise and know-how to help bring these projects to fruition.

“Our ability to compete in this market is greatly improved by our long-standing relations with the US in the oil and gas sector.”

Daniel Tibbetts, trade commissioner for The Canadian High Commission in the UK, is among the guest speakers at the AREG seminar and will talk about what is involved in entering the Canadian market. Fellow speaker Paul O’Brien, senior executive for renewable energy development at Scottish Development International (SDI), will provide information on support available to Scottish companies interested in venturing into North America.

The seminar will also include an overview of the opportunities in the North American market by Andrew Reid, of Douglas Westwood, while Kevin Moran, of Aberdeen-headquartered Wood Group Renewable Energy Services, will share the company’s experiences of doing business in the US.

The AREG seminar is being held ahead of a SDI-led mission to the largest US conference and exhibition dedicated to wind energy. The Windpower 2010 conference, which is organised by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), takes place from May 23 to 26 in Dallas, Texas.

For the fourth consecutive year, the US was home to the fastest-growing wind power market in the world. Wind capacity increased by 60% (8,558 megawatts) in 2008, representing $16.4billion in federal and private investments in new wind projects. Total US wind capacity at the end of 2008 was 25,369 megawatts, compared with 23,933 for Germany.

By the third quarter of 2009, the total new installed wind capacity grew to 31,000 megawatts, an increase of 5,800megawatts and consolidating the US as the world leader ahead of Germany.

At tomorrow’s seminar, companies or organisations interested in finding out more about the North American market are being offered individual appointments with Sarah Hillyear, Daniel Tibbetts and Paul O’Brien. For more information, contact AREG on 01224 814620 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              01224 814620      end_of_the_skype_highlighting or email

AREG is working to ensure that Aberdeen City and Shire capitalises on the inventiveness and enterprise that has firmly established it as the oil capital of Europe to become a global energy hub with a reputation for delivering renewable energy innovation.

Established in 2001, AREG now has more than 120 members representing professional services, education and training, oil and gas supply chain, as well as wind, tidal, wave, hydro, bio, solar and geothermal energy, plus hydrogen and fuel cells.
