Renewable energy holds the key to a cleaner future. We believe that it is time to take real action to create a world that runs entirely on green energy.
As a global leader within green energy, we contribute to transforming the world’s energy systems from fossil based to carbon neutral sources of energy. We develop, construct, and operate offshore wind farms, bioenergy plants and innovative waste-to-energy solutions, and provide smart energy products to our customers. Each area contributes to our vision of a planet that runs entirely on green energy.

In September 2018, the 659MW Walney Extension was inaugurated in the Irish Sea. It is the world’s largest offshore wind farm, generating enough energy to power nearly 600,000 UK homes annually. It is also the first project consisting of wind turbines from two different manufacturers, MHI Vestas and Siemens Gamesa.
Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. (TEPCO), the largest power company in Japan, and Ørsted A/S (Ørsted), the world’s leading offshore wind developer, announced today that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to work jointly on offshore wind projects.
Ørsted’s first project within battery storage, Carnegie Road, is now operational. The 20 megawatt (MW) battery, located in Liverpool, consists of three battery containers, as well as the associated power conversion system, all supplied by NEC.
Following successful data-sharing from earlier generations of offshore wind farms, Ørsted will now also share data from a wind farm featuring 6MW turbines. The aim with sharing wind farm data with technical universities is to further improve wind farm design and inspire future engineers to join the green energy industry.
In a new partnership, the energy company Ørsted and the environmental organisation the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) will be working together to fight the impact of climate change. The partners want to focus on engaging children and young people to create the green Denmark of the future. The first event arranged in connection with the new partnership will be a great ‘climate safari’ for children and young people.
Ten years ago, Novo Nordisk and DONG Energy committed to a bold climate partnership – the very first partnership between a large business enterprise and an energy company. The aim of the partnership was to make businesses commit to energy savings and to invest in renewable energy. And the effort has paid off.
In the first of two German auction rounds, the Bundesnetzagentur has awarded DONG Energy the right to build three offshore wind projects in the German North Sea. For two of the projects – OWP West and Borkum Riffgrund West 2 – DONG Energy made bids at zero EUR per MWh, i.e. these projects will not receive a subsidy on top of the wholesale electricity price.
Three of DONG Energy’s power stations have said goodbye to coal and gas, and the next in line is now well on the way. Skærbæk Power Station is getting ready for the transition to green energy, and the first shipload of sustainable wood chips has arrived. The shipment of 3,546 tonnes of wood chips is the first of several before the power station can commence its production of green energy.
Energy is an important driver of industrial productivity growth. For a long time Europe has known that energy efficiency is the most cost-effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This White Paper covers insights into Denmark’s experience with energy efficiency across a wide range of industrial sectors through state-of-the-art case examples.
Today, approximately 70% of renewable energy consumption in Denmark is bioenergy-based, mostly in the form of straw, wood and renewable wastes. This White Paper gives an overview of Denmark’s solutions, cases and experiences in transforming sustainable biomass resources into competitive bioenergy solutions.
This white paper takes you through all the elements of the success story of wind energy in Denmark. From the starting point and what we now consider small-scale wind turbines to the projects and technologies that push the bar and the ambitions for wind energy as a source of renewable energy. We hope you will be inspired.
