The osmotic power plant – it is scalable and build from strong brands
Principle of Osmotic Power
Two water sources with different salinity are mixed via a membrane to produce electricity. Water flows across the membrane and builds up pressure, and by passing the pressurized water through a turbine electricity is generated.
The power of osmosis explained from hydro power
How tall should a hydropower dam be before it will produce the same power as an osmotic power plant operating on water with high concentration of salt? Several kilometers. Princip-model: Illustration of the osmotic pressures from different salt concentrations in geothermic reservoirs in Denmark.
Using off-the-shelves components, a scalable system design and high utilization rate with no need for batteries, electricity from osmotic power can be produced at a cost that is comparable to or lower than other renewable energy sources.
