The Danish capital's utilities, including Ørsted, ARC, Hofor and Vestforbrænding, have set up a new consortium, EnergyWatch gathers. The partners aim to capture 3 million tonnes of CO2 per year, while other joint infrastructure projects are also being considered.

Even though the utility has voiced stern warnings about building an artificial embankment island for Denmark's forthcoming North Sea power hub, it's still an interesting prospect, says CEO. The previous caveat was merely an expression of societal responsibility.
Coal-firing in Ørsted's power plants increased last year and was in line with the volume from five years back. The utility's CEO says he can live with a few bumps on the road toward completely quitting coal and is not considering divesting power stations that could be equipped with CCS systems.
Ørsted has now waited longer for an approval in the US than the company had hoped, but signs from the Biden administration have renewed the company's optimism, says CEO Mads Nipper. "Processes are now in motion," he says.
