Fighting climate change with green energy
Ørsted is fighting climate change by transforming the global energy system – with wind power, solar energy and storage solutions, large-scale power purchase agreements, and cutting-edge green energy solutions such as renewable hydrogen.
Today, we’re growing our place in the onshore wind market in Europe and North America, having already made a name for ourselves as the world leader in offshore wind. In total, we generate enough wind energy in Europe, North America and Asia to power more than 16 million people.
We’re also expanding into solar energy and energy storage in the US, and in Denmark we’ve almost finished converting all our combined heat and power plants to run on sustainable biomass instead of fossil fuels.
As a key part of our commitment to fighting climate change through renewable energy, we sign power purchase agreements to help corporations cover their energy needs with green power from our renewable energy assets.
And because some industrial processes and forms of heavy transport can’t be directly electrified, we’re collaborating with partners in Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, and the UK to make renewable hydrogen and sustainable fuels commercially viable.
