The Young Professional webinar series last year was a fantastic way to engage with key topics, ask burning questions to industry leaders and find out more about the role of young professionals in the energy industry. To kick off OEUK’s first webinar of 2022, we are focusing on Resilience through the Energy Transition. The event, sponsored exclusively by Halliburton, is aimed at graduates, those early in their career and anyone new to the energy industry.

The free to join webinar will focus specifically on resilience in light of the current energy landscape and how this will help us achieve our collective goal of reaching net zero by 2050 in the UK. The tragic events in Ukraine also underlines the fact that the UK must minimise its reliance on imported energy and the climate crisis means we must also continue cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

The next generation of industry talent is key to realising the energy transition through new technologies and smarter ways of working to help achieve our targets – so we want to hear from you. The event will also include presentations from a variety of speakers including industry leaders, topic specialists and experts in the field.

There will be the opportunity for you to ask questions of the panel who will be offering their insights around energy transition and their personal experiences of the industry. Just one year on from signing the North Sea Transition Deal, industry is in action supporting the nation’s transition to a lower-carbon future, but we still have a way to go.

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

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.


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.
