We are a renewable energy company that takes tangible action to create a world that runs entirely on green energy.
Formerly DONG Energy, the recently rebranded company now takes its name from Danish scientist Hans Christian Ørsted, whose curiosity, dedication and interest in nature led him to discover electromagnetism in 1820, paving the way for how electricity is generated today.
The company is undertaking a truly green transformation, having divested its oil and gas production business and committed to phasing out coal from its power stations worldwide.
Headquartered in Denmark, Ørsted develops, constructs and operates offshore wind farms, bioenergy plants and innovative waste-to-energy solutions and provides smart energy products to its customers.
Ørsted is a significant investor in the UK, which is the company’s largest market for offshore wind power.
Ørsted recognises the importance of developing strong links with academia in order to cement the UK’s position as world leader in the offshore wind industry.
