In the search for alternative “green” sources of electricity occurred unexpected twists. Found that infusion of the rivers in the sea lays a huge energy potential. It can be used for environmentally friendly production of electricity through osmosis.

Here’s how it works in practice.

Thoughts of energy from renewable sources we regularly turn to solar energy power, wind, tides and facilities for its transformation – wind dynamos, solar plates and water dynamos. All are key aspect to humanity toward a cleaner future and become more commonly used globally.

The list of renewable power, however, is not limited to them. The world needs more energy, “clean” energy from an inexhaustible source, generation, gentle nature. Search and technology development in this area does not stop. It established that even calm sea leaves a huge energy potential. Thus, another way to get electricity was found, which is not yet widespread, but it is a matter of time as it is very promising. It is about energy flow of the process of osmosis.

Promising future for osmotic power, not only shows the predicted performance, and exceptional ecological profile of the technology. This is a making is deprived of no carbon dioxide. Furthermore, the likely price of energy is equivalent and viable with that of other renewable sources, could save significant resources by building a power plant.

In many places the confluences of the rivers into seas have already developed industrial sites and infrastructure. Clear advantage of this procedure is that it can be organized in existing industrial buildings. The benefits are not only economically but also environmentally friendly – no further breach of the landscape. The only probable undesirable effect of osmotic invention on the environment may be an emancipation of salt waters, which would alter the local habitat.

However, this practice will not be allowed because there will be strict control over the water outlet. Thus, it can even improve the environmental situation around already operating industrial sites. No less important is that the osmotic energy production quantity produced is foreseeable and constant.

It is not reliant on weather conditions – sunshine, intensity of wind and tides. All these advantages make it attractive for osmotic energy more investors in energy projects, research centers and consumers.
