ABOUT

The RED-Heat-to-Power project adopts a game-changing approach that generates electricity from low grade heat in the temperature range of 40 to 100oC. This clean source of electricity is very flexible and can cover base load or peak load at a very competitive cost, having all the characteristics for contributing to the mix that will form the backbone of the future energy system.

Concept

Generation of electricity from salinity gradients using Reverse Electrodialysis (RED) in a closed-loop system, where artificial saline solutions are used as working fluids.
