Wind Power

Wind Power

Wind plays an important role in Europe's transformation to cleaner energy, and it has great potential. DONG Energy has built more offshore wind farms than any other company worldwide. We have built more than one quarter of the total offshore wind capacity in the market. By 2020, we aim to have doubled our installed capacity compared with 2016 from 3.0 GW to 6.5 GW. The installed capacity in 2020 is equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of 16 million Europeans.

​The birth of offshore wind

Vindeby Offshore Wind Farm near Lolland in the south east of Denmark was constructed in 1991 as a demonstration project which was to prove whether it was possible to generate green power offshore. The world's first offshore wind farm was a great success, but after more than 25 years of operation, the Vindeby wind turbines were worn down, and DONG Energy therefore decided to decommission the wind farm. Now, the dismantling process has been completed. See the film about the dismantling of Vindeby Offshore Wind Farm.

 

 

How we work

In the Wind Power business unit, we are committed to constantly improving our procedures for safety, the environment and quality.

We build offshore wind farms to produce cleaner, more reliable energy without compromising on the safety of our employees or the environment. We enter into partnerships to ensure that we can turn wind energy into a long-term competitive energy resource. We also have a specific objective to reduce the cost of electricity from offshore wind turbines.

How we work

What we do

Wind Power develops, builds and operates wind farms in Northern Europe. We have built more than one third of the total offshore wind capacity in the market, and five million Europeans receive clean electricity from our offshore wind farms. By 2020, the farms we have built will be able to supply clean electricity to 15 million Europeans. Read more on these pages.

What we do

Where we operate

Wind Power has the largest portfolio of offshore wind farms in Northern Europe. Denmark, the UK and Germany are our largest and fastest-growing markets.

More offshore wind farms are on the way, for example Westermost Rough in the UK and Borkum Riffgrund 1 in Germany.
