Repowering Onshore Wind Seminar About the Event

Nearly three decades on from the commissioning of Scotland’s first commercial onshore wind farm, a growing number of projects are approaching their end-of-life point. With The Scottish Government committing to both 20GW of onshore wind by 2030 and to a circular economy, the industry must step up to the challenge of becoming a maturing industry where repowering becomes the norm.

Key questions will need to be answered on how we deal with our decommissioned turbines, retain their valuable materials within our industry and grasp the opportunity to become a world leader in circularity and remanufacturing in a world where competition for resources will only increase.

In this seminar, leading experts share key insights into the business development opportunities presented by decommissioning, life extension and repowering and how Scotland can use first-mover advantage to secure a position as a global centre of expertise.

You’ll learn:

  • The scale of the decommissioning challenge and the economic opportunities it presents
  • The latest innovations in establishing a circular economy, refurbishing and reusing industrial components in Scotland’s onshore wind fleet
  • The benefits of diversifying revenue streams through the effective replanting of replacement projects
  • The opportunity to embrace the advantages of hybrid operation on co-locate sites

Who should attend?

Academia, advisory, community groups, consultancy, developers, finance, grid specialists and stakeholders, industry, legal, local and national government, manufacturers, planners, public bodies, supply chain, trade associations, trade press, professional associations and anyone else with an interest in the economic development and growth of Scotland’s maturing onshore wind sector.
