ERG Group is a European renewable power producer, with an office in Edinburgh, which has been operating successfully in the energy sector for 80 years. In recent years ERG has completed a radical transformation of its business, transitioning from being a major privately–owned oil company to being a leading independent operator in the market for electricity from clean, renewable sources.
ERG is active in seven countries — in the UK, France, Germany, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Italy, where it is now the leading wind energy operator — owning and operating wind farms with a total installed capacity of 2GW. ERG is among the top ten wind energy operators in Europe by installed capacity. In 2018, ERG committed to investing up to 0.5billion within the UK market.

Renewable energies are sources of clean, inexhaustible and increasingly competitive energy. They differ from fossil fuels principally in their diversity, abundance and potential for use anywhere on the planet, but above all in that they produce neither greenhouse gases – which cause climate change – nor polluting emissions. The earth’s fossil fuel supplies (oil, gas, coal) are limited and will be depleted over time.
By 2030, the Scottish Government aims to generate 50% of Scotland’s overall energy consumption from renewable sources, and by 2050 they aim to have decarbonised our energy system almost completely.
