Energy is a prerequisite for modern society, and we are dependent on many different energy sources each day. Virtually everything we do – from when we get up in the morning to when we go to bed at night – requires energy: energy for activities at home, at work, for transportation and for our leisure activities.
Energy sources for many purposes
We are aware of a part of our energy consumption – especially of the energy coming out of the socket which makes our electrical appliances function, and of the energy used for heating our homes. But we may not consciously think about the fact that we also need energy for the production and manufacture of many of our everyday products. Products such as glasses, computers, plastic bottles, mobile phones, clothes, shoes and medical equipment are dependent on oil in their manufacture.
Green, independent and cost-effective energy
DONG Energy is working hard to provide more energy while reducing CO2 emissions from traditional energy production. We are converting the energy system to a more renewable and sustainable energy. We do this by introducing more offshore wind power and by increasing the use of biomass at our power stations.
