AREG is urging member businesses to put themselves forward for the Scottish Green Energy Awards.

The prestigious awards, organised by Scottish Renewables, showcase the best in renewable energy talent, projects and innovation.

The closing date for the awards, which this year include new categories recognising the best in: renewable energy; photography; engineering excellence; and export success is Friday [05 September].

Aberdeen City Council leader Jenny Laing said: "We have a wealth of talent and innovation in Aberdeen, particularly among our members, but our companies and individuals do not always see themselves as the high achievers that they are. As a result, they tend not to put themselves or others forward for awards.

"The level of recognition that being nominated, shortlisted for, or winning one of these awards brings can really put a business on the map. Awards can be a great promotional technique for companies, particularly the likes of the Scottish Green Energy Awards which are very well respected in the energy sector 

"I would urge all AREG members and other businesses with an interest in green energy to seriously consider entering the awards, or nominating another company or individual they think is deserving of one of these prestigious Scottish Green Energy awards.”

Nominees in 13 categories, including Best Innovation and Champion of Renewables, will vie to follow in the footsteps of previous impressive winners.

Previous Aberdeen city region award winners include Talisman Energy’s Beatrice Project (world’s first deepwater turbines), which won the Best Innovation Category; The Balmoral Group for Best Business Achievement; biomass company Arbuthnott Wood Pelletts Ltd for Best New Business; SeaEnergy Renewables took the Best New Business award; Udny Community Wind Turbine won the Community Initiative; and ROV operator ROVOP took the Business Growth Award.

Shortlisted candidates will be announced at a special networking reception to be held at Glasgow Science Centre on October 2. 

Nominations can be submitted via a simple online form, at
