X-wakes: Investigating how offshore wind farms change the wind

More and more wind farms are being built in the waters around Europe, Asia, and soon in the USA. But as more wind plants are built, there's a chance that they will start to change the wind conditions locally. The new X-Wakes project will investigate how the wind conditions in the German Bight might change with large-scale expansion of offshore wind farms.
