My research investigates the planning regulation and end-of-life deicison making for onshore wind and solar farms including how decisions are made regarding:

• Life-extension (extending the planning consent of existing infrastructure).
• Repowering (replacing sites with new infrastructure, often of a different scale and output).
• Decommissioning (removing infrastructure).

My research has investigated and provided policy recomendations regarding how communities should be involved in the repowering of onshore wind farms.
