Wind energy will be the cornerstone of the new sustainable European energy system. By 2030, almost 500 GW of wind energy will be needed, 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 the industry to step up. Installation of new wind farms will be required, but existing assets must be maximized through lifetime extension or repowering.
More wind also means greater responsibility and calls for more sustainability and circularity. This will enable new business models and boost the competitiveness of the European supply chain.
In 2023, EoLIS will focus on incorporating sustainability into every step of the process to create new opportunities and value.
