How a big polluter transformed into the greenest energy company in the world

Ten years ago Ørsted was one the most fossil fuel intense energy companies in Europe. Today, Ørsted has cut its emissions by 86 per cent and is ranked the most sustainable energy company in the world.

We highly recommend the panel discussion where Devapriyo Das of Ørsted took part. It sheds some light on how energy companies can have competitive advantage by making a decisive transition to renewables. This is the future of fossil fuel companies that still want to be in business in the 21st century as a part of the solution.

”When we set out on this decarbonizing journey as a company we believed it would take a generation, roughly 30 years, but we’re actually going to meet the target by 2025, which is decades ahead of what we ourselves predicted”, says Devapriyo Das.

”In the past six years the cost of electricity from offshore wind has fallen by 66 per cent. Today wind and solar are actually cheaper than fossil fuels in two thirds of the world’s countries. And the solutions are already here. We don’t need to start building fancy new systems. We already know the systems that work, we just need to build them at greater scale and accelerate that build-out.”

”And when they do that, that would also be a tremendous kick-start also for political will, because the more businesses can show that they can deliver this, the more politicians — I think — will also be convinced that they need to do what it takes to set the right conditions in place for the development of sustainable change in their economies.”
