WINDExchange Webinar - May 30 at 12 PM CST

Winding Down: End of Service and Recycling for Wind Energy

In this webinar, hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy's WINDExchange initiative, experts from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will introduce attendees to key concepts in end-of-service processes for wind energy technologies and infrastructure, including decommissioning, repowering, and recycling. As wind energy projects across the United States become older, decisions about end-of-service options and component processing are of growing importance to project owners and operators, state and local decision-makers, and neighboring communities. There is also concern about the blade waste that must be processed, with a number of recycling solutions being developed to meet this need.

This webinar will:

  • Introduce the processes and activities involved at the end of a wind energy project’s lifespan
  • Discuss their impacts on communities, landowners, the wind energy industry, and other stakeholders
  • Explain different blade recycling methods
  • Discuss the future of recycling in the wind energy industry.
