Headline Sponsor: Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG)

AREG works on behalf of members to promote the capabilities of companies and organisations in the renewables sector, and to assist them in accessing new opportunities.

AREG wants Aberdeen to be as famous for renewables as it is for oil and gas, renowned for the successful transfer of technology, skills and engineering expertise; its entrepreneurial approach and can-do attitude. It’s an exciting time for renewable energy and we want you to help us shape its future.

Established in 2003, AREG plays a key role in developing a sustainable renewable energy sector in Scotland and the UK through supporting our members and attracting investment.

AREG will achieve this by aligning opportunities with capabilities in the supply chain, supporting renewable energy businesses, facilitating the transfer of technology, skills and expertise from oil & gas, promoting the city and AREG members nationally and internationally, and enabling, supporting and promoting local renewable projects.
