About us

The Ørsted vision is a world that runs entirely on green energy. Ørsted develops, constructs, and operates offshore and onshore wind farms, solar farms, energy storage facilities, renewable hydrogen and green fuels facilities, and bioenergy plants.

In 1991, we built the world’s first offshore wind farm. With 11 turbines and enough output to supply 2,200 Danish homes, Vindeby may have been a small beginning, but it paved the way for a huge transformation in the way we generate power. 

Just over three decades later, in 2022, Ørsted commissioned Hornsea 2, the world’s largest offshore wind farm, which now supplies 1.4 million British homes with power.

Fun fact: Hornsea 2 has been officially recognised in the Guinness Book of World Records 2024 as the highest capacity wind farm in the world.

Now, our UK offshore wind farms generate over 7% of the UK’s electricity and we’re still developing and constructing more offshore wind farms over the coming decade, including Hornsea 3.

So, we’re looking for bright minds to help us lead the energy industry and shape a brighter and inclusive future.


Transforming the way the world is powered is the biggest thing we can do to fight climate change. Join us at the forefront of the green energy transition.

Over the past decade, Ørsted has transformed from one of Europe’s most fossil fuel-intensive energy companies to being ranked as one of the world's most sustainable energy companies. This would never have been possible without the knowledge and enthusiasm of our people.

Ørsted is a global company with a growing footprint around the world. We have offices and operations across three continents – Europe, North America and Asia – where you can find opportunities to build your career. Find out more about the stories of some of our employees here.
