Developers, Owners & Operators
DONG Energy has become Ørsted. DONG Energy was one of the leading energy groups in Northern Europe. Our business was based on procuring, producing, distributing and trading in energy and related products in Northern Europe. A decade ago, we initiated our transformation from a black to a green energy company as DONG Energy. Since then, we've reduced ... Moreour coal consumption by 73% and decided to fully phase out coal by 2023. We've become a global leader in offshore wind with a market share of 25%, currently powering 9.5 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 to become fully dedicated to green energy.
