Session 2 of Energy Voice Tracking Transition Series on Wind will focus on the UK State of Play and will be held on Monday 7th March 2022, 14:30 – 16:00.

Beamed live from the UK Cabinet Office in Edinburgh, this session will build on the ScotWind Spotlight panel that kicked off the series and zero in on the UK’s burgeoning wind sector and the rich export opportunities it presents.

The session will seek to answer some key questions such as:

  • How does offshore wind contribute to the UK’s energy transition goals?
  • What does offshore wind mean for a decarbonised UK supply chain?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities around skills/workforce?
  • How the UK can lead the way in creating green jobs and exporting renewables expertise.
  • What can Scotland teach the rest of the UK about offshore wind (ScotWind reflection)?

Register here to join our audience and hear from our expert panel led by SSE fresh from their recent success in the ScotWind leasing round.

Exact details for session 2, with speakers will follow in due course.

Subsequent sessions will provide a comprehensive review of the global wind sector, and are scheduled for June 2022 (The Global Picture) and September 2022 (Where Next?).

Get in touch

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.
