Blue Energy / Blue Energy uses osmotic power to generate energy

Blue Energy

Blue Energy uses osmotic power to generate energy, through the difference in salt concentration between fresh water and sea water. The generated osmotic pressure can effectively generate electricity. This is a new renewable source of energy that is Environmentally Friendly. The modular design allows for the units to be arranged and modified according to the size of the bay. This design will greatly benefit developing island countries or places that have reduced natural assets/resources. This new power generation device will benefit the local industry, overall life activities, and will educate people on renewable sources of energy.
