The energy transition is already underway. But can we act fast enough?

Today, two-thirds of Europe’s energy system is based on fossil fuels. If the world is going to stop global warming, CO2 emissions have to be drastically reduced – and fast. The energy transition has already started, and by 2030 over 50% of Equinor’s investments are planned to be within renewables and low carbon solutions. 

Here’s why electrification is an effective climate measure

Electrification means powering platforms with renewable energy instead of fossil-based power. We’re reducing emissions from offshore oil & gas. Here’s how.

Equinor is in a unique position to make a difference in the global energy future.

“As our near 50-year history shows, our knowledge, innovativeness and drive have made us a global leader in our field. In the decades to come we intend to be equally ambitious. We will therefore take a leading role in the energy transition,” says CEO Anders Opedal.

We’re building the world’s largest offshore windfarm: Dogger Bank

Dogger Bank breaks the bounds of what size an offshore wind farm can be. Soon, this giant sandbank off the coast of the UK will be the site of the world’s largest offshore wind farm, capable of providing energy equivalent to powering five million British homes.

Find out about our hydrogen projects

Hydrogen will be a key contributor to the energy transition. Equinor is participating in several significant hydrogen projects. See below.

Equinor’s ambition is to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
