OSMOTIC POWER

HOW DOES IT WORK?

THE OSMOTIC POWER CONCEPT

SEA LEVEL OSMOTIC POWER PLANT

INDUSTRIAL OPPORTUNITY
Potential of 16 - 1700 TWh, of which 180 in Europe

Estimated break - even 50-100 /MWh

The membrane is key to the commercial utilization

APPROACHING THE GOAL FOR RES IN EUROPE
34% renewable electricity by 2020 necessary 600 TWh new renewable capacity available within 90 EUR/MWh Scenarios with power pricing between 80 � 100 EUR/MWh
A European cost curve for renewable power
EU 25 + Norway

34% RES-E 34% target based on 20 % based on lower power expected power demand demand

PRESENT SITUATION
Statkraft and R&D partners represent state of the art osmotic power knowledge and is the only known serious developer of the concept The most prominent challenges are:
Efficient membrane Process optimisation and scale-up

Acknowledged by a range of industrial companies, research organisations and official organisations Statkraft will continue its development of Osmotic Power membranes in cooperation with industry and science
