By the numbers: How we build a world that runs on renewable energy
Ørsted has over three decades of experience in building renewable energy and is today among the world’s leading renewable energy companies, with a broad range of solutions to help decarbonise the world’s energy systems to limit global warming.
At Ørsted, we have a vision to create a world that runs entirely on green energy. The production and use of fossil fuels account for nearly 75 % of global carbon emissions. To limit climate change and power the world sustainably, we must drastically accelerate the transformation of the world’s energy systems from fossil fuels to renewables.
We transformed from a fossil-fuel based energy company to a green energy company in a little more than a decade by investing significantly in renewables. We have reduced our carbon emissions by 89 % since 2006, and the share of green energy in our energy generation rose to 90 % by the end of 2021.
