CEO of Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group reacts to Green Freeports announcement

 

David Rodger, ceo at Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) has commented on the announcement that Cromarty Firth and Forth Ports have won Green Freeport status whilst Aberdeen and Peterhead missed out.

He said: “Whilst it is very disappointing that Aberdeen and Peterhead were not chosen for Green Freeport status, the growing activity around transition and renewables in the North-east, including hydrogen and offshore wind, means that the area will very much continue to play a crucial role in the delivery of world class energy projects and make a huge contribution to Scotland’s net zero goals and just transition objectives.

“Although two official winners were announced today, all ports involved in the five final bids stand to benefit from the huge volume of offshore wind and renewable projects on the horizon.

“Along with eight English freeports, the two Scottish freeports will bring economic benefits across the UK.”
