Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG)
Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group was launched in 2001, when offshore renewables were barely on the UK energy agenda and has been pioneering the renewables revolution ever since. The organisation is a highly innovative public-private, not for profit, partnership that acts as a catalyst to develop the renewables industry and transfer forty years of existing offshore oil and gas skills in Aberdeen City and Shire into renewables. AREG has also been instrumental in conceiving and facilitating flagship projects in Scotland, not least the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre.
As a membership body, AREG is dedicated to harnessing the array of energy expertise rooted in the region and channeling it into renewable energy for the benefit of its members and the local and national economy.
AREG helps its members to access business opportunities through networking, events and information dissemination. Membership is open to individuals and organisations involved in renewables who are headquartered or have significant operations in Aberdeen City and Shire. Benefits include promotional platforms, participation in members meetings, seminars and workshops, participation in joint events and exhibitions, news updates and access to market intelligence on projects, international trade and business development opportunities.
