In addition to solar energy and wind energy, the widely recognized clean energy is actually a similar clean energy, which is osmotic energy. This kind of energy may not even be heard by many people, but it will bring a lot of energy.
Infiltration energy is a very precious treasure in the hearts of scientific researchers. Unlike wind energy and solar energy, it will not be affected by any natural environment, and energy is huge and almost inexhaustible. Because it is a renewable energy source, its energy output is unpredictable, and its output tends to be stable, which is very different from wind energy or solar energy.
Permeation energy is mainly a large amount of energy produced by water pressure generated by solutions with different concentrations, and this energy can be used to generate electricity. Simply put, it is similar to fresh water and seawater. When the surfaces of these two high and low salinity solutions contact each other, they are separated by a layer of translucent membrane, which will generate pressure difference. Water molecules of fresh water will permeate through the translucent membrane, and at the same time, osmotic pressure will be generated to the translucent membrane, thus obtaining osmotic energy.
The water pressure of low-salinity solution is higher than that of high-salinity solution, so if a turbine engine is placed at the inlet of seawater, the turbine can be used to generate electricity. Using this method to generate electricity is not only environment-friendly, but also can be achieved without rest for 24 hours. The energy generated by this method is also very high, and it will not be affected by wind or other factors such as temperature air, and has high working efficiency.
It is understood that Norway, a northern European country, successfully applied this osmotic energy to power generation for the first time. Its national power company not only developed the world's first osmotic energy generator, but also plans to build an osmotic energy power station in the near future to conduct large-scale research and promote osmotic energy.
According to relevant researchers, if the power plants are completed, the annual power generation capacity of these power plants will reach 1.7 trillion degrees, which is equivalent to the power consumption of the whole of China in 2002. Therefore, it seems that there is a very broad prospect of generating electricity by using osmotic energy. Of course, if this new type of energy can be popularized, it can help the world to realize the regeneration and utilization of energy as soon as possible. We look forward to this day coming as soon as possible.
