Dr. Lukas Vollmer

Lukas Vollmer uses flow models and an immense quantity of wind farm data in his work at the Fraunhofer IWES aimed at better understanding of wind farm performance. His doctoral thesis investigated means of reducing wake losses in wind farms and his first experiences with flow measurements and models were gathered while studying oceanography on a range of research ships. When he’s not dedicating his time to his kids, he also tries to lead a pub football team to the Wilde Liga amateur championship in Bremen.
