(WINDExchange Webinar) Winding Down: End of Service and Recycling for Wind Energy

May 30, 2024

In this webinar, hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy's WINDExchange initiative at 1 p.m. ET on May 30, 2024, 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.

Register to join this virtual WINDExchange webinar even if you can’t make it; we will share the recording with all who sign up to attend.
