DONG Energy is headquartered in Denmark and is the world leader in developing, building and operating offshore wind farms.
We have been market leaders since we built the first offshore wind farm, Vindeby, in Denmark, in 1991 and we now have offshore wind farms in the UK and Germany. Our largest offshore wind fleet is located in the UK. We are a world leader in offshore wind and the UK is the biggest market for our investment going forwards. Offshore wind is a central part of the future British energy mix because the UK has an excellent wind resource and is a proven technology that will offer long term energy security to the UK. We believe offshore wind is a good investment opportunity in the UK. We have also set ourselves the target of reducing the cost of offshore wind by 35 - 40% by 2020.
As well as being the market leader in offshore wind, we also sell gas and flexible electricity solutions to our commercial energy customers. We are also in the process of constructing our world-first green energy from waste enzyme technology plant, REnescience, in Northwich, Cheshire.Company Name: DONG Energy UK
