Apollo is delighted to announce that it has joined NECCUS as part of its growing activities within the Energy Transition. Focussed on enabling green technologies and playing a key role in industry achieving Net Zero, Apollo is looking forward to bringing its expertise and contributing to the strengthening of the alliance and supporting the reduction of carbon emissions from industrial sources in Scotland and beyond.

Apollo is currently working with a number of oil and gas operators reducing their greenhouse gas emissions through either removal of redundant and carbon intensive equipment, refinement of processes and making step change decisions such as assessing suitability for electrification.

This work continues in parallel with Apollo’s growing footprint in renewable energy which spans offshore wind developers competing in the ongoing ScotWind leasing round, Celtic Sea and the recently awarded Round 4 sites, as well as developing critical technology at the forefront of the wave and tidal sectors.

Apollo is no stranger to the challenges and complexities surrounding Carbon Capture, and has experience in supporting the delivery of pilot CCUS schemes in the past, through providing design and engineering support and verification on behalf of both duty holder and independent verification bodies.

More recently Apollo has undertaken a number of studies investigating the feasibility of repurposing existing infrastructure for CO2 and hydrogen transportation and management in the North Sea.

Energy Transition Manger, Lucy Green said “Apollo’s home on Waterloo Quay at Aberdeen Harbour is at the heart of the Energy Transition. I am personally very excited for the opportunity to play our part in supporting NECCUS. Recognising that there is no silver bullet to meeting the climate change objectives chimes really well with the NECCUS mission. I am confident that our pedigree in renewable energy and oil and gas production combined with our heritage in the North East of Scotland will benefit NECCUS massively.”

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.
