The energy transition:
challenge opportunity of our time.
Does a future exist where we can ensure enough energy for everyone, while also being good stewards of our planet?
Can a wind turbine
generate more than electricity?
At Equinor, we’re planning to power nearly two million homes in New York with homegrown, renewable energy. But there’s more.
As a broad energy company with an ambitious net-zero target for 2050, we’re pursuing the development of offshore wind projects in the US and quickly becoming a leader in the country’s growing offshore wind industry.
That way we’re not only helping providing homes and industries with clean power and generating value, but also helping the US to meet its climate targets.
Equinor selected for largest-ever US offshore wind award
On January 13, 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.
Empire Wind and Beacon Wind
The U.S. East Coast is one of the most attractive growth markets for offshore wind in the world, and these projects will deliver homegrown, renewable electricity to New York. They represent a game-changer for our offshore wind business in the U.S. and demonstrate our commitment to be a leading company in the energy transition. Empire Wind and Beacon Wind are being developed by Equinor and bp through their 50-50 strategic partnership in the U.S.
