About Ørsted

Creating a world that runs entirely on green energy

We believe that it's time to take real action to create a world that runs on green energy. Renewable energy holds the key to a cleaner future, and we need to act now to reduce the effects of climate change.

We want to revolutionize the way we power people by developing green, independent and economically viable energy systems. By doing so, we create value for the societies that we’re a part of and for all our stakeholders.

A decade ago, we initiated our transformation from a black to a green energy company. Since 2006, we’ve reduced our use of coal by 73% and more than halved our carbon emissions.

As we continue our green transformation towards a completely carbon neutral footprint by 2040


We've become a global leader in offshore wind with a market share of 25%, currently powering more than 12.5 million people. Our ambition is to raise this number to 30 million by 2025. In 2017, we divested our upstream oil and gas business, thereby completing our transformation into being fully dedicated to green energy.

We’ve taken our name after Hans Christian Ørsted, one of Denmark’s best known scientists and innovators. Through his curiosity, dedication and interest in nature, he discovered electromagnetism in 1820, helping to lay the scientific foundation for how power is generated today. These qualities of Hans Christian Ørsted are just what we need to truly revolutionise the way we power people.

We’re headquartered in Denmark, and our shares are listed on Nasdaq Copenhagen (Orsted). We employ 6,500 people who collaborate with our partners to revolutionize the way we power people through innovative energy solutions and real action.
