From Black to Green Energy: Pivoting a Business Model in Real Time

In just 10 years, DONG Energy has transformed itself from one of the most coal-intensive utilities in Europe to a leading global renewable energy giant. DONG reduced its coal consumption by 74 percent by replacing coal and gas with biomass at a number of its power plants, has constructed huge offshore wind farms in European waters, and today owns as much as one-fourth of the offshore wind capacity in the world. Filip Engel has overseen the company’s massive turnaround from a coal-intensive utility to market leader in offshore wind and will walk us through how and why DONG pivoted their business model in real time to become one of the most recognized names in renewable energy.
