Briefing Paper: Refurbished & Remanufactured Wind Turbines

The aim of this guidance note is to aid communities and businesses looking to procure refurbished / remanufactured wind turbines. It covers factors that should be taken into account when considering refurbished / remanufactured wind turbines as a procurement choice.

Refurbished & Remanufactured Wind Turbines

Wind

This guide will assist with installing wind turbines in Wales and help you understand the steps needed to deliver a project. The toolkit is designed as a reference guide covering all sizes of project including small sub-1MW turbines up to large multi-MW projects.

Biomass

This guide will assist with installing biomass energy project in Wales and help you understand the steps needed to deliver a project. The Toolkit is designed as a reference guide covering all sizes of project however individual biomass systems on single buildings have different requirements to larger multi-building systems. The outline requirements for both will be explained in detail.

Heatpumps

This guide will assist with developing a heat pump project and highlight the key differences between a renewable heat and renewable electricity project. The development of a typical project is laid out in a step by step process. Each section includes breakpoints to help groups understand whether a project is suitable to progress. The process is designed so that key areas can be revisited with more detail as the project moves forward.

Solar PV

This guide will assist with developing a solar PV scheme in Wales and help you understand the steps needed to deliver a project. The toolkit is designed as a reference guide covering all sizes of project from small-scale domestic PV to solar farm projects. The scale and complexity of larger projects will require additional detailed evaluation.
