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, the world’s first floating offshore wind farm. Now we’re partnering with SSE Renewables and Eni to deliver Dogger Bank – the world’s biggest offshore wind farm and an important milestone in delivering UK’s Sector Deal ambitions 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.
Offshore wind will be a key component in the future energy mix and one of the solutions for meeting the increasing demand for renewable power and enabling the energy transition in Norway and Europe, building new industries and jobs.
The North Sea has some of the world’s best wind resources and large-scale offshore wind has the potential to create new industrial opportunities for Norway as an energy nation. Equinor’s decades of operating experience in these demanding conditions has given us unparalleled insight and knowledge that is directly transferable to develop wind projects in the Norwegian North Sea.
We are developing the first floating offshore wind farm to supply renewable power to oil and gas installations in Norway. The Snorre and Gullfaks oil and gas platforms will be the first ever powered by a floating offshore wind farm.
