Taking action to stay within 1.5°C

With this paper, Ørsted wants to illustrate that it is possible to halve global emissions by 2030 and limit global warming to 1.5°C, protecting our shared home from runaway climate change. We have the solutions – notably cost-competitive solar and wind energy – required to decarbonise the energy system, which is the biggest contributor to global warming.

A European green deal 

How offshore wind can help decarbonise Europe
Europe has set out to become the world’s first climate neutral continent by 2050. This will require a massive buildout of renewable energy – including 450GW offshore wind generation – an ambitious, but feasible target. To get there, Europe needs a new approach to the offshore wind buildout. With this paper, Ørsted wants to point to three key questions, a new approach must address: how to find the space, how to ensure the infrastructure and how to enable the industry to scale.

Making green energy affordable

How the offshore wind energy industry matured – and what we can learn from it.
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.

Europe powered by green energy

How the North Seas can lead the change - Europe sits on one of the world’s best offshore wind resources in the North Seas. Here, wind speeds are high, relatively constant and the waters are shallow, providing good conditions for bottom fixed foundations.
