Objectives A desktop feasibility study to evaulate the environmental and cost impact of high value assets throughout their life and investigate opportunities to apply circular economic principles to reuse, repurpose, refurbish, repair, remanufacture, redeploy or recycle assets. Supporting SIF discovery commencement through additional data gathering, formatting, reviewing and validationSupport and accelerate the transition to SIF alpha Maximise the success of discovery by feeding in additional data gathering, formatting, reviewing and validation to inform the SIF outcomes
Abstract Asset Reuse and Recovery Collaboration (ARRC) - Discovery Continuity will investigate the environmental and cost impacts both high value and high volume assets across electricity generation, transmission and distribution and consider current procurement, commissioning, use, and disposal practices. This project will establish different successful methodologies to extend asset life using circular economy principles with the aim to inform small and large scale demonstrations at later phases.This project is in place to safeguard the delivery and continuity of the associated SIF project.
