Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) has appointed David Rodger as CEO as the organisation seeks to further develop support to members and increase links with stakeholders to assist net-zero strategies across north east Scotland and beyond.

David has extensive experience across the energy industry including communications and business advice. He will join AREG on October 1 following 9 years with Shell.

Having previously spent 4 years with AREG as communications manager, David joined Vattenfall in 2009. He supported the development of the Clashindarroch onshore windfarm near Huntly, as well as the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC), of which AREG was a driving partner, before joining Shell in 2012.

Commenting upon his appointment, David said, “I’m extremely proud to be returning to AREG as CEO. Despite leaving more than a decade ago, I’ve continued to be heavily involved through advisory groups and supported the organisation at every opportunity. There has been enormous change in that time but we’re now entering another exciting phase for renewable energy in Scotland, and I can’t wait to be part of that with AREG as we grow the organisation to champion both the production and use of low carbon energy - right across industries, communities and homes.” 

He further added “the north east in particular has a strong base to work from with decades of energy experience and we want to make sure the local supply chain can take advantage of the exciting opportunities being created across the renewable energy sector from floating wind to hydrogen and wave power. I’m looking forward to engaging with members and fellow industry organisations to identify the challenges and opportunities for local organisations as efforts are ramped up to achieve net zero emissions.”

“Through his developer experience, David will bring fresh ideas and initiatives for the organisation as we continue to champion the supply chain and enable a just energy transition,” Jean Morrison, chair of AREG, added.
