Sustainability

At DONG Energy, our mission is to develop energy systems that are green, independent and economically viable - and every day we're working hard to transform the energy landscape.

 
 

Offshore wind power

 
Since 2006, we have transformed from one of the most coal-intensive utilities in Europe to become a global leader in renewable energy. In the UK, we are the market leader in deploying and operating offshore wind farms.

Reducing the cost of renewable energy

 
By 2020, we aim to reduce the cost of offshore wind power by 35-40%. This would take offshore electricity costs down to €100/MWh.

 

As experts in both renewable electricity generation and supply, we have created renewable energy products that will help your business achieve its sustainability objectives. These can be integrated with any electricity contract provided by DONG Energy. Whether your objective is carbon reduction, sustainability or reducing costs, we will work with you to find a solution that meets your needs. 

 

DONG Energy also supplies renewable energy without the premium, putting renewable 'green' contracts on an equal footing with ‘brown’ contracts. We believe that by making this investment on behalf of UK companies, we can help to bring businesses closer to a sustainable energy future. Read more

 

Our fuel mix

 
A fuel mix is the ratio of different fuels or energy sources used to generate the electricity supplied, including electricity from the wholesale market. Each year, energy suppliers are required to publish information about their fuel mix.

The information in the table below shows DONG Energy's fuel mix, along with the UK average, for the period from 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016. This is broken down as a percentage of electricity produced from each source, along with the environmental impact.
