21 - 05 - 2019


Filipa Magalhães, an INEGI consultant in the field of wind energy, was invited to join the support committee for the seminar "EoLIS - End-of-Life Issues and Strategies", promoted by the Wind Europe association.

The seminar aims to bring together the wind power community - industry representatives, investors, companies, academia and research institutions - to discuss the imminent end of life of a significant part of Europe's wind turbine fleet, and outline possible lines of action.

"With the approaching end of equipment life, decision makers will have to analyze different scenarios, taking into account the economic viability of the projects, the regulatory framework in force, the profile of investors and their short and medium term objectives, as well as other factors, "says Filipa Magalhães, INEGI's specialist in wind energy.

The seminar will take place on September 5th in Leuven, Belgium, and until then the committee will focus on the preparation of the event's program, the definition of topics for the call for papers, as well as the selection and review of articles submitted .

Filipa Magalhães is a member of the committee which also includes Peter Spengemann, Director of Repowering at WPD Windmanager Gmb, Uli Schulze Südhoff, Director of Business Development at GE Renewable Energy, Jannie Nielsen, Professor of Civil Engineering at Aalborg University, and Massimo Golluscio, engineer in Enel. Work meetings are already scheduled for the coming months.

In April, Wind Europe organized the "WindEurope Conference & Exhibition", one of the most prestigious international events dedicated to the sector, where INEGI was also present.
