Aberdeen: Next generation hydrogen

Wall Street analysts are calling the prospects for hydrogen, and particularly “green” hydrogen, a once-in-a-generation opportunity – and Scotland is in a strong position to take advantage of this resource.


Collaboration for the green business era

In 2020, we collectively experienced rapid and significant changes to both our personal and work lives. The energy industry has been affected as much as any and the drop in oil price is always felt across north-east Scotland.


Targeting floating offshore wind growth

The recent announcement by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson on his plans to drive renewable growth and make the country a world leader in offshore wind may be a turning point for the UK in seizing the opportunity to lead a low-carbon transition.

Renewables/Energy Transition

Renewables group is powering ahead

Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (Areg) has grown its membership over the past 12 months, with sign-ups coming from leading companies within the renewables sector, renowned industry bodies and energy companies who are placing an increased focus on clean energy.


A hydrogen future on the horizon

Next month, Aberdeen is set to become the first city in the world to introduce revolutionary hydrogen powered double-decker buses. This is not the first time Aberdeen has been a world leader in the adoption of hydrogen for transport. The UK’s first hydrogen production and bus refuelling station opened in the city in 2015, and the arrival of these new vehicles will complement Aberdeen’s existing fleet of 10 hydrogen buses and enhance the city’s role as a pioneer in the adoption of green energy for public transport.


Prime time to put transition in focus

In these difficult times, it is challenging to manage day-to-day business as well as thinking to the future. Clearly, we have seen rapid and significant changes to business operations and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (Areg) members and others are under greater pressure than ever to deliver results.


Putting decarbonisation plans into action

According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the energy transition is defined as ‘a pathway toward transformation of the global energy sector from fossil-based to zero-carbon by the second half of this century’.


Shining light on energy transition

It has been a busy and positive 12 months for Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG), with the diversity of our members continuing to grow.


Blown away by the opportunities in offshore wind

With the Crown Estate’s recent announcement of offshore wind leasing round four, there is a fantastic opportunity for offshore wind developers to get involved in the first leasing round of its type in more than 10 years.


New AREG members give added diversity to energy mix

It has been a very positive 12 months for Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) as we have seen our membership rise with an increase in the number of companies supporting both the offshore wind, wave and tidal sectors.


2018: A renewed focus on green energy

It’s been an extremely positive year for the renewable energy industry with many ground-breaking projects going live. The increase in activity has built upon the success of the previous year, seeing continued growth in the solar, biomass, hydrogen fuel cell and wave and tidal sectors and achieving a record 10,336MW of installed renewable electricity capacity in Scotland.
