Harnessing innovation

To spark innovative ideas to speed up the green energy transition, we collaborate with organisations all over the world, writes Alex Louden, Senior Ventures & Open Innovation Specialist.

Ørsted sponsor the Global Offshore Wind Workshop

We’re looking forward to welcoming students from local schools who will spend the day learning about offshore wind.

Ørsted experts and apprentices will inspire and share their experiences with future generations. Pupils will hear what it’s like to work in the industry and understand the climate and biodiversity crisis plus the role of offshore wind in securing our planets future.

To be fair, it was also the world’s first. Now with 30+ years of experience, we’re building the world's single largest offshore wind farm off the UK coast– Hornsea 3. It’s just one project out of 7.6 GW of offshore wind capacity we're building globally in 2024, enough to power over 7 million homes.
