ENABLING NET ZERO ENERGY IN THE NORTH EAST OF SCOTLAND

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. AREG has supported the supply chain since 2003 to get involved in renewables and give our members a powerful voice in the sector.

Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG)

AREG wants the north east of Scotland to be a world-leading centre of excellence for the production and use of renewable energy.

It is an exciting time for net zero energy. AREG will play a key role as catalyst for renewable energy projects in the north east of Scotland, having already delivered more than £5 billion of low carbon infrastructure projects in the region.

Our 180+ members represent every facet of the supply chain from multinational oil and gas producers and energy developers, to technology specialists and professional services. Look at our full member directory here. 

AREG aligns opportunities with capabilities in the supply chain, supports renewable energy businesses and facilitates the transfer of technology, skills, and expertise from oil & gas. We promote the region and our members nationally and internationally, as well as enabling, supporting, and promoting local renewable projects.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.

Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.

Vattenfall

Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
