Wind farms create wakes that impact downwind farms—both causing premature fatigue on downwind turbines and reducing electricity production. As more windfarms are developed, how bad can the waking become and what legal remedies, if any, do existing wind farms have against construction of a new farm upwind?
Professor DuVivier co-authored an interdisciplinary article that was published recently in the journal Nature Energy: Costs and consequences of wake effects arising from uncoordinated wind energy development, J. K. Lundquist, K. K. DuVivier, D. Kaffine , J. M. Tomaszewski, NATURE ENERGY (November 26, 2018) https://rdcu.be/bb0aS https://www.nature.com/articles/s41560-018-0281-2
In this webinar, Professor DuVivier discusses her coauthors’ economic and atmospheric modeling analysis as well as her research concerning the law related to wind waking.
