In this series of lunchtime webinars, we will explore four important dimensions of planning for renewable energy: siting challenges, community engagement, Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects and end-of-life decision making (repowering and decommissioning). In each session we will hear from three industry experts, with plenty of time for a panel Q and A. Through attending the webinars, we hope that planners both working in private and public practice will be able to update their knowledge on the latest thinking and opportunities for renewable energy planning.

The webinars will all take place online and will be chaired by Dr Rebecca Windemer, senior lecturer in Environmental Planning at UWE.

Most wind and solar farms in the UK have been granted time-limited planning consents. Many wind farms are now starting to reach the end of their 25-year planning consents, raising the question of what next for these sites. In this final webinar we will hear from three experts to find out what planners need to know about end-of-life decision making for renewable energy including the policy context, factors impacting decision making, the opportunities for repowering and what needs to be considered as part of decommissioning.
