SusWIND 2023 Annual Review

05 December 2023

SusWIND has completed a successful second year of its industry programme, focused on creating a viable circular economy for wind turbine blades. The 2023 SusWIND Annual Review presents a year of insights, evidence and achievements from the programme that is enabling bold decision making needed to deliver industrial transformation.

To enable this future state, SusWIND and its partners are developing methods and tools for assessment and scenario planning for three key facets of a future industry: Reclaim, Adopt and Develop.

• Demonstrating the technologies and required supply chain to reclaim the value from in service blades and manufacturing facilities using the lowest impact routes.
• Driving the adoption of more sustainable materials and processes for the next generation of products.
• Developing innovative new design approaches based on circular economy principles.

To help ensure these insights are given voice and converted into action, the programme has built a consortium of likeminded businesses from across the industry. SusWIND partners are collaborating in order to inform and evidence the investment cases and requests for policy and regulation needed to enable the creation and scaling of circular supply chains for turbine blades and composite materials.
