Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center on Thursday, April 26, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for a conversation with Ørsted North America President Thomas Brostrøm as he discusses Ørsted’s transformation from an oil company to a clean energy company and lays out his perspective on the future of wind energy in the United States.

Ørsted, previously known as Danish Oil and Natural Gas, has undergone a profound transformation in recent years. In recognition of the challenge presented by climate change and the opportunities afforded by the global energy transition, the company divested its fossil fuel assets and made new investments that have seen it become one of the world’s fastest-growing and most active clean energy firms.

The company is particularly strong in the offshore wind sector, where it has used its offshore oil and natural gas experience to build a robust new business, including in the United States. With Ørsted now among those bidding to build the first utility-scale offshore wind projects along the East Coast of the United States, it is a consequential moment for both the company and the entire US wind sector.

Lunch will be provided.
