AREG, a membership body for renewable energy in the north east of Scotland, and OGUK, a 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.
AREG chair Jean Morrison (pictured) and Deirdre Michie, chief executive of OGUK, have vowed to share resources and market intelligence to help deliver a sustainable transition to a lower carbon future.
Morrison says: “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.”
Michie adds: “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.”
