Plenary: Making a business case for lifetime extension

Of the 22 GW reaching their economic end of life, WindEurope estimates that 17.8 GW will receive a lifetime extension. How can we make sure that these sites remain profitable? In other words, how do we ensure that maintenance costs remain low while safety standards remain high? How can PPAs be a solution to reach financial viability?
