European Green Week SGP

During the European Green Week 2021 an informative webinar will be hosted by IMIEU on the topic of Salinity Gradient Power (SGP). This technology allows to generate power through mixing fresh and saline water. The goal of the event is to inform policy makers, industry partners, researchers, and the public at large about the benefits of generating power through SGP technology in order to achieve the objectives of the New European Green Deal and the new, more ambitious 55% objective regarding the implementation of renewable energy.

IMIEU has initiated the INES platform and coordinates activities related to sharing knowledge, developing pilot projects on an international scale, and further strengthening scientific cooperation. Additionally, through international collaboration, the platform tackles the common challenges of the technology, such as fouling of membranes and enhancement of quality and capacity, pre-treatment issues, and upscaling of installations in general. Moreover, by mobilizing finance, the platform aims to efficiently adapt to environmental risks so that the goals set out in the Paris Agreement and EU Green Deal can be achieved. 

For the last two years, steps have been taken towards upscaling, and in both the Netherlands and Denmark, scaled-up solutions of 1MW or more are being developed. During the event, the key partners of the INES platform will present their applications and commercialization of SGP technology.
