AREG, the membership body for renewable energy in the north east of Scotland, and OGUK, the leading trade body for the UK’s offshore oil and gas industry, will work closely on low carbon project opportunities and promote the work of members within their organisations.

The agreement demonstrates the close relationship between the oil and gas supply chain and the renewables sector.

Jean Morrison, chair of AREG said: “There has been a longstanding connection between AREG and OGUK and I am pleased that we have been able to formalise this relationship to work closer together. The agreement will allow us to promote the energy transition in the north-east and highlight market opportunities. With decades of expertise in energy and engineering, Aberdeen and the north-east is well placed to deliver the energy transition.”

Deirdre Michie, chief executive OGUK said: “This agreement underlines OGUK’s commitment to an inclusive, fair, and sustainable transition to a lower carbon future. We look forward to continuing our work with AREG which will help ensure that communities realise their potential through the energy transition.”
