Real power

New York State has set a nation-leading goal to be 100% powered by green energy by 2040 – and that’s an ambition that Ørsted is proud to share.

Our vision is to create a world that runs entirely on green energy, and as the world leader in offshore wind, we’re the perfect partner to help New York State reach that ambitious goal. We’re already developing the state’s first offshore wind farm, which will serve Long Island’s South Fork, and we’re just getting started.

South Fork Wind Farm
We’re already on the ground in New York developing the state’s first offshore wind project – the 15-turbine South Fork Wind Farm that'll power Long Island’s South Fork.

Our wind farm is the most affordable solution to meeting the South Fork’s unique energy needs. The South Fork Wind Farm will generate enough energy to power 70,000+ homes and offset millions of tons of carbon emissions. Local construction is planned to start in 2021, with the wind farm in-service in 2022.

Globally, Ørsted has installed 5.6GW of offshore wind power, enough to power 12 million people. That’s almost one and a half times the population of New York City.

Real know-how

We’re not just America’s leading offshore wind developer, we’re the world leader. And since pioneering the world’s first offshore wind farm in 1991, we've gained unrivalled experience and know-how within our field, creating true value for the local communities in which we do business. With over 1,100 offshore wind turbines installed and bringing reliable, green energy to millions around the world, we know what it takes to make offshore wind a reality.

Proud to be America's leading developer
We own and operate America’s first and only offshore wind farm – Block Island Wind Farm. We have real know-how from being the first in the nation to successfully build an offshore wind farm. And we’re especially proud that, in addition to Rhode Island, the states of New York, Connecticut, Maryland and Virginia have entrusted us to deliver their first offshore wind projects. This local experience combined with our global track record makes us the perfect partner to deliver offshore wind to New York.

Real commitment

Ørsted is committed to bringing the power of offshore wind to as many people as possible. Globally, our goal is to power 30 million people by 2025 and we’re investing over $30 billion to make that a reality. That investment will create new jobs, new opportunities and new initiatives for local communities.

We take great pride in being a part of the East Hampton community with our South Fork Wind Farm project. As part of our commitment to the local community, we’ve pledged to bring more than $8 million in direct benefits, including $3 million to support the commercial fishing community.

Offshore Winds of Change – How a challenged community embraced its past to rewrite its future
The town of Grimbsy was in decline after the steel mills shut down and the fishing industry slowed down. Offshore wind has given this small town new opportunities and new hope.

The world leader

Ørsted is the world leader in offshore wind and our vision is to create a world that runs entirely on green energy

Ørsted has been the world leader in offshore wind energy since we built the world’s first offshore wind farm in 1991. We currently operate 25 offshore wind farms with over 5.6GW of installed capacity – that’s enough to power over two million homes each and every year with clean, sustainable energy.

We own and operate Block Island Wind Farm, the first and only offshore wind farm in the United States, and we have a comprehensive national footprint with the largest pipeline of development capacity.
