We want to let our members know that Aberdeen City Council’s lead officer at AREG, Morag McCorkindale, will be taking on a wider remit at the Council. She will continue to be involved in supporting the development of renewable energy and hydrogen projects for the city, but will be stepping back from her AREG role.
On behalf of AREG’s board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Morag for her huge contribution to AREG and the growth of renewable energy developments in our region, most notably the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre, which she championed for many years from early concept stage through to full construction and contributing clean energy into the grid to power homes. We would like to mark Morag’s departure and pay tribute to her achievements at a special event as soon as COVID-19 restrictions permit.
AREG will continue to work closely with Aberdeen City Council on enabling net zero and as a delivery partner for the Energy Transition Leadership Board. AREG has grown its membership by 25% in the last six months and continues to form strategic relationships that will benefit our members, provide opportunities for the supply chain, and demonstrate that the North East of Scotland is ideally suited for both the production and use of renewable energy sources.
We will make further announcements in due course. In the meantime, for all membership enquiries and contributions to our digital channels and newsletter please continue to contact Beverley Stainton – firstname.lastname@example.org.
