With the world accelerating the wind power deployment, the wind industry is looking for strategies how to increase wind power generation in the most efficient manner. Repowering, i.e. replacing old and small turbines with new machines, comes into the center of the deliberations. Worldwide, there are hundreds of thousands of Megawatts of wind turbines which were installed ten years ago or even earlier. According to estimations, global repowering can double the current wind power generation – in general, repowering projects can be expected to multiply by a factor of four in terms of power output and by a factor of three in terms of installed capacity.. 

The WWEAwebinar explores potentials and benefits of repowering - why should it be done? There are also technical aspects which require attention as well as regulatory barriers which require political adjustments. Experts will discuss these areas with the ultimate goal of developing guidelines for a national repowering strategy.
