A significant share of Europe’s wind turbine fleet will come to the end of its projected lifetime within the next 10 to 15 years. In order to fulfill Europe’s long-term decarbonisation agenda, the share of wind energy in the energy mix needs to grow further, and this outgoing generation capacity will have to be replaced. But this process is not as straightforward as it could seem.
WindEurope’s End-of-Life Issues & Strategies (EoLIS) seminar’s one-day programme tackled policy and permitting issues as well as technology challenges, with in-depth sessions on lifetime extension, repowering, decommissioning and recycling.
When: Wednesday 18 November, 16:15-16:45
The LERR JIP aims to tackle some of the most challenging issues around the management and decommissioning of aging offshore wind assets. With a focus on circularity and technical solution development, the JIP has brought together stakeholders from across the wind and waste industry, along with key Government departments and universities. The session will go through the aims and objectives of the Life Extension, Recycling, and Repowering Joint Industry Program. Scopes and initial work packages will also be presented, in addition to revealing confirmed members and partners of the JIP.
