The move will also see the organisation change its name to Offshore Energies UK from 14 February 2022.​

This move reflects the diverse mix of energy-generating systems needed to achieve net-zero.​

CEO, Deirdre Michie says, ​'Extending our representation to include renewable and carbon-cutting industries will better reflect the agile nature of the companies involved in energy production.'
