Session description:

The average operational lifetime of a wind farm is estimated to be in the range of 20-25 years. This means that a significant portion of most installed wind farms will come to their nominal End of Life in the coming years and operators will have to make critical business decisions based on the specific characteristics of the site, conditions and installed technology. With reference to the European Union, such decisions will also have a significant impact on delivering the 2030 wind capacity and energy targets declared in the National Energy and Climate Plans as well as on the foreseen carbon neutrality targets by 2050. The session End of Life & Business Decisions will kick-off with an overview of the current wind energy landscape and repowering potentials in Italy and it will them move on to give an account of cutting-edge tools to help navigating among the possible options: extend the operational life of the assets, re-power the site or decommission.
