German renewables firm ABO Wind opens first base in England

GERMAN renewable energy firm ABO has opened its first office in England.

The company, which currently operates in the UK via bases in Lisburn and Falkirk, will add a new premises in Slough.

ABO’s UK operation is headed by Co Down woman Tamasin Fraser.

The Dromore woman said the new English base will help ABO work towards its goal of delivering 3GW of renewable generation and energy storage facilities across the UK between now and 2030.

“We are all acutely aware of the current energy crisis, pressures on security of supply and the need to tackle climate change. We passionately believe that renewable energy has a central role to play in addressing each of those challenges,” she said.

“Deploying proven and cost-effective technologies, including solar PV, onshore wind, and energy storage at scale will be critical.

“This can be done whilst promoting other important agendas such as food security and we hope to see that reflected in a coordinated approach between all relevant government departments.

“As well as helping to achieve energy independence and removing our reliance on fossil fuels, renewable energy presents an opportunity to create thousands more jobs and attract investment across the UK.

“We look forward to announcing exciting new projects in the coming months and working closely with local communities and all stakeholders to deliver a clean energy future that benefits everyone.”
