Breezing into the Future with Dr. Mike Howland

Offshore wind energy in the United States is a nascent industry but one that has great potential to move the country closer to net zero. A fascinating aspect of offshore wind is how to optimize the energy production of a wind farm given all the variables involved: wind speed, wind direction, how close the turbines are to each other… the list goes on. This episode features Dr. Michael Howland, Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT, whose fluid mechanics and modeling research is leading the way in optimizing renewable energy systems.
