More renewable energy capacity for millions of people
Our build-out of renewables brings clean power to millions of people and is a key driver in our own decarbonisation.
With a 30 % market share, Ørsted is the world leader in offshore wind, and we continue to bring renewable energy to new markets across continents to be a catalyst for the green transformation and help others go green.
Increasing our renewables share makes our energy generation less carbon intensive as it reduces the carbon emissions per unit of energy produced. In 2020, 90 % of our total energy generation was from renewable sources.
By the end of 2020 for offshore wind power, we had an installed capacity of 7.6 GW, a capacity of 2.3 GW under construction, and a further 5.0 GW of awarded capacity. In total, this brings us close to our installed offshore wind capacity target of 15 GW by 2025, enough to power more than 30 million people.
