Aberdeen Exhibition Centre
- The energy centre will showcase renewable technologies to contribute to Aberdeen’s position as Europe’s energy capital and will allow the new AECC to be one of the most sustainable venues of its type in the UK.
- The energy centre sits within the masterplan and is an integral part of a fully integrated approach to sustainability and delivery of the vision, profile, exhibition and conference venue, the most sustainable solution is to develop a separate energy centre that meets the demand of the AECC and the remainder of the masterplan development and potentially off-site demand.
- This will meet the annual demand of the AECC, together with the remainder of the proposed masterplan development and will offer the potential for additional off-site uses. By connecting these other energy demands the Energy Centre will deliver zero operational carbon energy to the AECC.
- The energy centre will also be designed as an on-site demonstration facility, providing a showcase for Aberdeen City and Shire as not only an oil and gas leader, but a world class centre of excellence for the global renewable energy industry.
