It’s a fact: wind turbines don’t last forever
Wind energy will be the cornerstone of the new sustainable European energy system. By 2030, we will need almost 500 GW of wind energy, but a large part of Europe’s turbine fleet will come to the end of its operational life over the next 10-15 years.
Delivering on these ambitions will require our industry to step up. Installation of new wind farms will be required, but we will also need to maximise our existing assets through lifetime extension or repowering.
