Ørsted ready to explore renewable energy opportunities with Australia

Global offshore wind leader Ørsted has initiated market development discussions in Australia. Ørsted welcomes the positive direction set for offshore wind energy by both the Commonwealth and Victorian State governments to create jobs and provide secure clean energy.

Speaking at the All Energy Australia 2022 conference, the country's largest clean energy event, Per Mejnert Kristensen, Head of Region Asia-Pacific at Ørsted, said:

“Ørsted recognises Australia’s strong offshore wind potential. Backed by supportive policies and momentum for clean energy, we believe Australia has all the ingredients for a thriving offshore wind market. Local economic and regional development is at the heart of all Ørsted’s projects. We plan to engage closely with government, local communities and traditional owners to explore opportunities to deliver renewable energy solutions which supports local jobs and supply chains.”

As the world’s leading offshore wind developer, Ørsted can help Australia unlock its potential for generating reliable homegrown clean energy.

We have an unmatched track record in delivering offshore wind projects on budget, on time and safely to markets across the world.
