‘May Be Problematic’: New Study Highlights Another Potential Roadblock for Biden’s Offshore Wind Push

A new study published in a scientific journal called Wind Energy Science and authored by

researchers from the University of Colorado and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), focuses on what happens when the presence of nearby wind turbines reduces wind speeds for other turbines and their ability to produce power. The researchers project that the “wake effect,” the technical name for the phenomenon, could lead to a loss of up to 38 percent of power generation at one East Coast offshore wind development.
