Solar energy and storage

Transforming the way we power the world with solar energy and storage


Solar is one of the fastest-growing renewable energy technologies

At Ørsted, we’re utilising solar power to harness nature’s resources and deliver clean, renewable power to the population.

We develop, construct, and operate solar photovoltaic (PV) and battery storage systems, and we currently have 1,068 MWAC of solar PV and storage installed and 1,479 MWAC  under construction.

Our sustainable approach to project development balances complex siting data with community needs to develop solar projects that exceed economic expectations, while earning the trust and support of local communities and landowners.

By 2030, we aim to have 11-13 GW of onshore wind, solar, and storage capacity across our markets, while growing our portfolio towards a wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity mix.

Strengthening the electric grid

We believe utility-scale solar and battery storage will deliver electricity with increased value to the grid.

Key benefits of utility-scale solar 

Coupled with batteries, solar becomes a dispatchable source of power that reliably delivers electricity during peak demand. 

In addition, batteries provide other attractive services to the grid that have yet to be fully explored. Batteries can respond quicker to requests for power than conventional generation, making them a valuable and nimble tool for grid operators.

From a system perspective, as more variable wind and solar resources are added to the grid, large batteries help balance the system. Likewise, as more batteries are added, more solar can be reliably integrated into the grid, creating a mutually beneficial system.
