TotalEnergies’ ambition is to be a world-class player in the energy transition. As part of this, we are committed to providing solutions that contribute to fighting climate change and advancing sustainable development. In Scotland, for example, we have several renewable energy projects underway to help the country reach its 2045 carbon neutrality goal.
Offshore wind power, with its low greenhouse gas emissions, is a fuel of the future. That’s why we are increasing the number of projects in the British North Sea.
In June 2020, we acquired a stake in the Seagreen 1 project, which sets out to develop the largest offshore wind farm in Europe. In September 2021, we took part in the Scotwind round bid for the development of a wind project west of the Orkney Islands, with the potential to supply more than two million homes with renewable electricity. And leveraging the offshore expertise that we have built in Aberdeen over the last 50 years, we have opened an offshore wind hub in Scotland’s third-largest city to enable the transition of teams from oil and gas to wind power, as that part of the Company’s U.K. business grows.
We are also working with our partners to develop a large-scale green hydrogen facility in this same area, powered by renewable energy from our offshore wind projects.
