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.

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.
New York City – CEO and President of Ørsted, Henrik Poulsen, spoke to heads of state and government in the General Assembly Hall in New York City on Monday 12:00 EST. He urged world leaders to set clear, ambitious targets, fast-track the build-out of renewable energy, and accelerate coal phase-out.
Ørsted has decided to phase out fossil-fuelled vehicles and make its car fleet 100% electric. As of 2021, the company will no longer buy or lease fossil-fuelled vehicles, and in 2025, Ørsted’s car fleet will be 100% electric. Ørsted is the first Danish company to join the global EV100 initiative.
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.
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.
