Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) will explore how oil and gas companies can transfer technology, skills and engineering expertise into the renewables sector at the All-Energy conference in Glasgow this week.
AREG is supporting diversification of oil and gas skills into renewables and is working with Aberdeen City Council’s Trade and Inward Investment team on the initiative.
AREG’s Morag McCorkingdale said: “We want Aberdeen to be as famous for renewables as it is for oil and gas.
“There needs to be a sustainable energy sector, which supports jobs for future generations and it is important we retain critical energy skills as well as promoting our capabilities across the country and globally.”
