The potential of osmotic energy in the EU :Final report

23 May 2024

In the context of renewable energy supply in the Member States of the European Union, energy generation using osmotic power plants represents a future possibility. The first part of this study therefore examines osmotic energy technologies in terms of their technical state of development, a technical comparison of osmosis technologies with each other and other energy systems, as well as an economic overview. In the second part of the study, the potential for osmotic energy generation in the EU Member States is determined. The aim of the study is thus to provide an overview of the technology systems and the general energy potential. Information regarding the energy potential from osmosis was gathered through a combination of literature searches and interviews with experts in the field.
