The UK’s Got Wind!

Ladies and Gents, behold, Hornsea One! It’s the biggest wind farm in the world, and it’s only a third finished, stretching 75 miles off the British coastline and boasting some 175 turbines. The total area covered by the turbines’ blades is bigger than the millennium wheel in London, and a single one of them supplies one days’ worth of power to the average home per rotation. Not too shabby!

It’s making a difference, and suddenly, all might not be lost in the fight against climate change! Things are getting heated in the Swiss Alps as Greta Thunberg speaks her piece to the global elite. Although repetitive at times, everything she says to tempt, guilt-trip, or out-smart apathetic change-makers is worthwhile. A lot has been done, but there’s a lot still to do.

This wind farm represents the kind of strong action that Greta wants to see from governments. It inches the United Kingdom closer to its goal of using offshore wind for a third of its electricity needs and rewards investors committed to funding ethical causes.

The energetic firm building this massive wind farm is called Ørsted. It trades on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange (CSE) and made a cool sixty billion in Danish Krone last year thanks to the world’s last-minute rush to meet the end-of-days climate deadline.

Market players treat Ørsted with respect. It’s less cyclical than traditional energy firms whose stock prices bend and break with commodity spot prices, and it’s a more defensive play than Big Tech vying to innovate the next best form of renewable energy. Ørsted will be fine so long as the wind never stops blowing!
