Bidding farewell to coal
Since 2006, Ørsted has undertaken a massive biomass conversion programme, rebuilding and upgrading our coal-fired combined heat and power (CHP) plants so that they can run on sustainable biomass.
By 2019, we’d reduced our coal consumption by 91 %. What’s more, thanks to the significant role our CHP plants play in heating and powering Denmark, our biomass conversion programme has been one of the largest contributors to the country’s national emissions reductions.
By 2023, we’ll have fully phased out the use of coal in our operations*. This’ll mark the end of a chapter in Ørsted’s green transformation story.
