ElectricSteve writes “Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway officially opened the world’s first osmotic power plant prototype on November 24. The prototype has a limited production capacity and will be used primarily for testing and data validation, leading to the construction of a commercial power plant in a few years time. Statkraft claims that the technology has the global potential to generate clean, renewable energy equivalent to China’s total electricity consumption in 2002 or half of the EU’s total power production” What’s osmotic power? Wikipedia to the rescue!
