We have further developed and commercialized the concept of using osmotic power as a renewable energy source in which high salinity waters and freshwater is mixed to release energy. Salt is a natural resource with an untapped energy production potential ready to support the transition to a decarbonized economy. The technology can be easily applied worldwide to harness energy in various applications.
Existing salt manufactures from solar, mining, and borehole can benefit from SaltPower technology. The electricity produced through PRO can be used to reduce the intesive energy consumption in the salt production and supplie surplus clean energy to the electric grid.
By integrating osmotic power and geothermal heat it is possible to obtain an energy optimizing synergy effect. The geothermal saline water is used to produce district heating and at the same time to produce electricity. The electricity produced through PRO can be supplied to the existing grid and used in the geothermal plant, hence reducing the energy consumption of producing district heating.
