End-of-life decision making for onshore wind and solar farms

The report provides the results and recommendations from my 3 year research project exploring end-of-life decision making for onshore wind and solar farms in Great Britain. This includes an investigation of experiences of repowering, life-extension and decommissioning.

Who is this report aimed at?

  • Wind and solar farm developers.
  • Government level planning policymakers with an interest in the regulation and repowering of onshore wind and solar farms.
  • The general public.
