Continued investment in gas and oilContinued investment in gas and oil

Of course, offshore wind is not the sole solution to the UK energy challenge – the transformation to low carbon supplies cannot happen overnight.

That’s why DONG Energy is a major investor in the West of Shetlands and has one of the largest portfolios of licences in the area. This includes a 20% share in the Total operated Laggan-Tormore project where first gas was produced in the beginning of 2016.

DONG Energy was instrumental in opening up the West of Shetlands for oil and gas production, investing in infrastructure as well as fields.

A leader in offshore windA leader in offshore wind

DONG Energy is 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.
