Established in 2003, Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) is the original energy transition organisation, helping our network of members to access opportunities that accelerate the development and use of renewable energy whilst championing the sector.

Member support and opportunities

AREG plays a key role in accelerating the transition to renewable energy by enabling our network of members to access opportunities in the UK and overseas.

We do this by connecting the supply chain with developers and project owners, sharing market insights on new developments, policies, and funding opportunities with our membership, championing our members and the renewable energy sector, and promoting collaboration across our 270+ membership community.

Partnership and sponsorship

We are working closely with our members, governments, and stakeholders to create a low-carbon energy future that will benefit generations to come. We also have a range of sponsorship opportunities available, including our webinars, networks and smaller, targeted digital campaigns.

If you are interested in working with AREG or would like to find out more about sponsorship, please contact us at [email protected].

A proven track record

Our growth over the past 20 years can be attributed to our track record of delivering renewable energy initiatives such as the development and delivery of the EOWDC Aberdeen Bay Wind Farm, supporting the Vattenfall Unlock Your Future Fund, participating in strategic committees such as the North East Scotland Hydrogen Ambition (NESH2A), Steering Committee, and Aberdeen City’s Net Zero Committee, as well as collaborating with partner organisations to promote information sharing, skills development, and networking.

Energy transition

AREG is based in the North-east of Scotland, which has been at the heart of the UK oil and gas sector for more than 50 years and the region is now home to a unique mix of low-carbon projects and activity with the ambition to be a globally recognised leader in a just energy transition.

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.
