Research from Denmark shows that offshore wind turbines can affect the weather several thousand kilometers away.

According to research from the Danish Meteorological Institute, wind farms affect wind speed, precipitation, and temperature. The wind farms’ impact can be traced far inland.

Professor Eigil Kaas says he is a strong supporter of wind turbines but notes that it is important to investigate how they affect the surrounding area.

“And when there is a violent development of wind turbine (projects) in both the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, it can affect the weather several thousand kilometers away,” Kaas warned.
