Research suggests scientists have overestimated capacity of wind farms to generate power

Mesoscale atmospheric modeling looking at the mass effects of kinetic energy absorption by wind turbines suggests that the power capacity of large-scale wind farms may have been significantly overestimated. The effect occurs because each wind turbine creates a «wind shadow» behind it, in which the turning blades slow the air.
