ACTING ON IT!
High aspirations are great, but what is Equinor really doing to get closer to its ambition of net zero by 2050? In these stories we set the focus on specific projects, concrete measures and real people that are shaping Equinor’s role in the energy transition.
Olav-Bernt Haga has extensive experience in developing new forms of renewable energy. Now Haga is dedicated to working on floating offshore wind, which he calls a tipping point technology; in other words, a form of renewable energy that will be highly important in order for the world to achieve its climate goals.
Here are four reasons why floating offshore wind and Hywind Tampen are important for Norway and the future.

"The world is going to need oil and gas for decades to come. A lot of people might think that oil is merely petrol, but there's a need for both oil and gas in areas that people might not know or think about,"
Oil and gas are necessary within heavy industries such as steel and cement, they're still used for power generation in many countries, and as raw materials in everyday products such as mobile phones and medicines.
We are on the way to a low-emission society, but until we get there, the world will still need oil and gas.
