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.

Increasingly companies all over the world are seeing the need to transform to a sustainable business model. Ørsted has undertaken a green transformation in the last decade. In the late 2000s we were one of the most coal intensive power generators in Europe with an expanding oil and gas production business. But we took a […]
Ørsted, the world’s leading offshore wind developer, and Yara, the world’s leading fertilizer company, have joined forces in developing a pioneering project aiming at replacing fossil hydrogen with renewable hydrogen in the production of ammonia with the potential to abate more than 100,000 tonnes of CO2 per year, equivalent to taking 50,000 conventional cars off the road
Ørsted, recently ranked the most sustainable company in the world, will become carbon neutral by 2025. This will make Ørsted the first major energy company to reach net-zero emissions in its energy generation – far ahead of science-based decarbonisation targets for limiting global warming to 1.5°C. Additionally, Ørsted has established a target of achieving a carbon neutral footprint by 2040.
Covestro, a world-leading supplier of high-performance polymer materials, has signed a 10-year corporate power purchase agreement with Ørsted to buy the output of 100MW from the planned Borkum Riffgrund 3 offshore wind farm.
All 174 wind turbines have now been installed at the world’s largest offshore wind farm Hornsea 1. When operational, Hornsea 1 will be almost twice the size of the world’s largest wind farm to date – the Walney Extension – and capable of powering well over one million UK homes with renewable electricity.
Ørsted, the world-leading offshore wind developer, has selected GE Renewable Energy as the preferred turbine supplier for two of its US offshore wind farms which marks the world’s first commercial deployment of GE’s Haliade-X 12MW offshore wind turbine.
Offshore wind power holds the potential to power hundreds of millions of people in a sustainable way. It has become cheaper to produce energy from newly constructed offshore wind farms than from newly built coal or gas-fired power plants, and vast areas are readily available at sea.
Located far from the Danish coast and in an area of the North Sea with high waves, the Horns Rev 2 offshore wind farm, the world’s largest of its kind at the time, has been covering the annual power consumption of around 200,000 Danish households with renewable energy for the past decade.
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.
Multifuel concept – an efficient way to reduce CO2 emissions In 2008 BWSC (then BWE) was awarded a contract from Ørsted for the design, supply, erection and commissioning of 4 burners for pulverized biomass (wood pellets) inclusive of pulverized fuel piping and the necessary modifications of the primary and secondary air systems at Herning Power Plant in […]
The fabrication of offshore monopile substations for Gunfleet Sands, is the largest offshore substation fabricated at Bladt Industries. The installation was carried out in 2008 off the coast of Clacton-on-Sea in Great Britain, and will gather electricity form 30×3.6 MW windmills. The electricity will be transported from the wind turbines through 33 kV sea cables, […]
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.
When looking at the global climate challenges, the energy system is one of the biggest obstacles towards a carbon-free and net-zero future. The European Union has set ambitious objectives for an energy system, which integrates renewable energy and energy efficiency, as well as enabling a well-functioning energy market. These elements in combination can support a […]
Energy is an important driver when ensuring a green transition – both in society, but also in the industries and production facilities across the globe. As the world’s resources are becoming increasingly scarce, companies must learn how to produce more from less – not only to limit their environmental footprint and decarbonise, but also to leverage the competitive advantages of improved production efficiency.
In this whitepaper we share some of Denmark’s solutions and experiences in transforming sustainable biomass resources into competitive bioenergy solutions. Due to the extensive use of bioenergy, there is an abundance of expertise available in this field. In addition to hosting several top-efficient, full-scale biomass plants, Denmark is an industry hub and testing ground for […]
