Our climate ambitions – net-zero by 2050
Learn more about our climate ambitions, what it means and how we in Equinor work to reach our ambition of becoming a net-zero company by 2050.
Equinor has long experience with wind power in the UK, having already built and put into operation Sheringham Shoal, Dudgeon and Hywind Scotland. Now we’re partnering with SSE Renewables to deliver Dogger Bank – the world’s biggest offshore wind farm and an important milestone in delivering UKs sector deal and decarbonisation goals.
To become a global offshore wind major we have a value-driven strategy, underpinned by creating scale in regional clusters. Here we present our renewable vision for the North Sea.
In January 2021 Equinor was selected to provide New York State with offshore wind power in one of the largest renewable energy procurements in the U.S. to date. Under the award, Equinor and our partner, bp, will provide a total of 3.3 gigawatts (GW) of power to the State.
For Poland, our ambition is to be a preferred partner contributing to the Polish energy transition and the Norwegian-Polish energy cooperation.
Equinor has interest in all three Baltyk offshore wind development projects (MFW Baltyk III, MFW Baltyk II and MFW Baltyk I). With interest in all three projects, we can build scale and value in what we see as an important energy region.
We are developing the world’s first floating offshore wind farm to supply renewable power to offshore oil and gas installations in the North Sea.
The Snorre and Gullfaks oil and gas platforms will be the first ever powered by a floating offshore wind farm. The wind farm will be located between the platforms some 140 kilometres from shore in 260-300 metres of water.
This is a major breakthrough and an important step towards reducing emissions from the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
In addition to our offshore wind presence in the UK, the US and Poland, we are present in the following markets:
