Ørsted's onshore wind farms

Where we operate

In 2018, Ørsted expanded into the onshore wind industry. We currently operate 2.1 GW of onshore wind assets in the US and across the island of Ireland. We’ve got 2 GW under construction across the US states of Alabama, Texas, Nebraska, and South Dakota, in Ireland and in the UK. By 2030, we aim to have 17.5 GW of onshore wind, solar, and storage capacity across the globe.
